|Heading here today in hired taxi beginning at 4 am! Should take 6 hours and it is really the beginning of our adventure...prior to now we have just been tourists dealing with typical tourist issues...the challenge now begins!
Later...had to show our passports at least 6 times betw Dakhla and the border...
Dakhla, Hotel Sahara, Chofic - nice fellow arranged 'car' which turned into a van to/across the border. Hamid was fellow who drove us - left about 4:00 am(ll 1/2 hrs trip total). Stayed in Camping Auberge Abba where we met fellow who spoke English & helped us arrange taxi to capital next day(lvg at 5 am). We went to a restaurant only few doors away and ordered spaggetti -it took one and a half hours - we think they went out and bought all the raw materials after we ordered! Ha, now we're in Africa!
