Having arrived with the romantic notion that oases consist of small waterholes lined with palm trees and where camels refuel after a long and arduous journey, we were a little surprised when we arrived in Kharga.
We saw no camels, no water hole, not even fountains, instead an ugly small town. In the course of the trip, the oases cleaned up any of our stereotypes anyway.
cockroaches in our hotel room are certainly also to blame. The city itself has nothing to offer except a very small old town center, the sights are all outside. Most can only be reached with a 4 × 4 vehicle. After all, you can get to the oldest Christian cemetery in the world (al-Bagawat) by taxi.
