Blogging Libya ?

Well traveller Adam has created a blog specifically because he is soooooooon coming to Libya ( thank you for emailing Adam ). How soon next week inshallah ;) . The solar eclipse is really bringing a lot of visitors here. It's nice that Libya is getting this kind of hopefully good exposure. Anyway Adam's blog " a little trip to the south " ... of course why not he will be talking a lot about my favourite topic : LIBYA , no ? right !

Another eclipse tourist who is blogging is Joe Carr ( hattip Khadijateri ) .Check him out he seems to have gotten the VISA for Libya and made sound arrangements too .

Libyan blogger Zizo is also a newbie let's go and encourage him shall we ? you can't go wrong if you love football .......

Hi Highlander, and thank you for your kind words. In fact they inspired me to (slightly) modify my blog title.

I will be arriving in the country of the Green flag on March 26 but then I will be directly off to Sebha. I will however be in Tripoli on the evenings of 5,6,8,9 April so it would be nice to meet. I have been trying to get the hotel name from my Austrian travel agent but they are not able to tell me.

I think Joe is from Canada - Canadians seem to be having no problem getting visas.

Adam - are you sure your staying a hotel?? My sources say many of the eclipse watchers will be housed in 'camps' - as in sleeping in tents. :)

Yes, I will stay in a hotel in Tripoli. I am positive. The travel itinerary says "4* hotel in the City Centre". I will be travelling with a group, I normally prefer the freedom of travelling on my own but in Libya this seems completly impossible. At least that is what I am told, is it true?

In desert however we stay in tents.
