If we've learned anything so far on this journey, it's to be ready for anything. One of the reasons why we are in Sicily at all is because we have to make a detour around Libya to get to Egypt for the next part of our trip. But there are several ways to get to Egypt. One route is to take trains all the way along southern Italy, catch a ferry to Greece, and take another ship to Alexandria, Egypt. Another possibility is to fly straight into Cairo, Egypt, via Rome (Italy), Athens (Greece), or the small island country of Malta. Visit us again tomorrow to see how we end up getting there!
