In Dunqula we had given up the idea of going to Karima. Mazar was right. There was no Diesel in Wadi Halfa, none in Dunqula where we spent the night and none inbetween. Seeing Jebel Barkal and the Amun Temple, driving across the desert to Meroe via Atbara and then on to Khartoum would have been fantastic, had been the plan and was now quite impossible. Our diesel was barely enough for the direct route to Khartoum.
