We have done a post before on surreal travel experiences but nothing has compared to our time in India. India itself is a little surreal and we have experienced some of the weirdest moments in our travels. Not surprisingly, many of those moments happened in the desert. It made us not only think of our time in the Indian desert, but other surreal moments that happened in deserts around the world.
6. A loudspeaker conversation in Egypt. Once again, we were riding our bike through the desert in Egypt. A patrol man pulled up beside us and started having a conversation with us. He would speak into his microphone and it came out of the loudspeakers mounted above the truck. Where are you from? How do you like Egypt? What are your name? He bellowed. We shouted back the answers between our breaths. It was a difficult day and we faced headwinds the entire time. The conversation eventually dwindled, but he kept giving us updates every 500 meters. Only 5 km to camp….4km to camp…4.5 km to camp. It was surreal. When we finally got to camp, we shook his hand and thanked him for keeping our spirits up.
