Cairo Australian Embassy, Ya Gotta Love 'Em!

They do a translation service and passport stamping on the spot for Libyan requirements. Minimal bureacracy.

"Gisya passport, mate..." scribble scribble... "there ya go, mate! No probs, eh?"

Problem solved, except how to pay the taxi driver to get back to the hotel. In this 37degree heat I ain't walking!

Actually the person behind the counter was a local woman who did the translation herself, and the taxi (limo) driver charged more than the embassy.

Those cheapskate Aussie bastards!

I was wondering why the porter who brought my luggage up stood there for such an inconscionable length of time as I did my email...
