To the Northwest of Gebel Quatrani is Abu Ballas, Father of Pots, first discovered by Prince kamal al Din in his Desert wanderings early in this century.Located on the Caravan trail that linked Wadi el Natroun and Wadi el Rayan to the South West.Abu ballas was obviosly a major station where caravans stopped to rest.it is 64 Km's from Qasr el Sagha in the middle of the Desert. The Pots scattered around this area date from the Roman Era and consist mainly of smashed Amphorae. There is a second Abu ballas Southwest of Dakhla Oasis on the way to Gilf el Kebir and Kufra Oasis in Libia.Recently me and Fantazmagoria have discovered a third Abu Ballas on the Same Caravan Route that Linked Wadi el natroun with Wadi El Rayan, but this one is located in the South West of the First one, about 130 Km's Southwest.We are still investigating this Site, which seems to be a major station as well as the first one North of Quatrani MT.

After i crossed the 23 Kilometers of this Escarpment, witch is 195 Mt. high: "So Flat, Rocky & very very Windy" Then i started serching for the easiest way down and finally i did it safely.
I then decided to Shoot this Video while i rest for a bit and also think of a good shelter to spend the night, specially that it started to rain:)
Anyway i continued my hike South East through the Wady el Deeb or the "Woolf Wady" searching for the best shelter againest the wind. At the end i had to dig my own "HOLE" to sleep in...
To tell you the truth i went in deep sleep in less than 5 Min.'s but had to wake up at 2:00Am,
When attacked by this visius Wild Field Dog, witch kept me awake since i started shooting him away and waiting for the Sun to rise. (I wish i had my Shot Gun) It was a surprise and also very scary, specially when you are sleeping alone without any shelter... I Thank Mighty God for saving my Soul by not Daying in such an agly way:))
I stayed for 5 days in paradise. I really enjoyed this trip even much more than if i had anyone with me. I was also able to discover new places that i've never been before and tryed enjoing every moment on this Solo Hiking & Hunting Expedition...

Me and my friend Fantazmagoria are exploring some new caves in the Western Desert of Egypt.
The Video was taken inside the main Cave. Wich is actually an Anciant Monastary from the 3Rd. to the 4Th. Centuary A.D. Whish was the time of the Roman Persecutions. Here the Hermits lived away from any kind of Civelization away from the World... Praying and asking the Lord for forgivness and Passion to be able to live in such a remote and isolated place.
The Cave is Located in a mountain, about 130 Km's South - West of Cairo in the Western Desert of Egypt and the whole area is full of Pottery and Artifacts, Coins and things that they used during these troubled times...
Exploring my new Discovered Paintings of a 4th Centuary Church.
We Climb and Crowl like Spiders through the Cracks & Canyons untill we reach the
Hidden Rooms, barried with Sand along hundreds of years, laying here in the Middle of this beautiful Landscape and different Terrain as we Hike through. We really had a great time.
A nice Desert Drive with some friends from Norway. Off - Roading from Cairo South/West towards the extreme edge of Fayoum Oasis. We drove over the Sand Dunes, through, along and across the Sahara till we reached the Wady of the Springs Oasis... We had a great time.......
