Cyrene, Libya

Our travel through the ruins


Our travel from Bamiyan wqas a rough one. We had to hike half the five thousand miles and then we found a car to rent and drove the rest. When we entered a border crossing, we handed in the requirements to get our tourist visas (6+ active passport, signed visa papers, two 2X2 recent photos, invitations from in Libya, and our buisness letters). They advised caution around this area due to a recent air attack (News Article). We barely made it and the car broke down in Shahhat, which was close to Cyrene. We rented a room in a run-down motel and stayed a night. The next day we got a mini bus into Cyrene. We hiked around the ancient ruins (see below). After we caught the last bus back to Shahhat, we prepared for our next journey.
