First post eh?
Well, heres the situation, there is a road, but you can't use it.
That's why there is soooooooooooooooooo much on 'How to Aswan to Wadi Halfra'
Yes, we don't use the ferry by choice, the way it is at the moment, and has been since, well, donkey's years, been the only way to get from Egypt into Sudan, and there does not seem to be any changes in the future.
I have thoughts that the 'Blue Nile Company' who run the ferry service from Aswan to Wadi Halfra, are paying the governments a 'back hand' NOT to build a road crossing !
