Sinuhe the Egyptian

After having read all the Historical novels of Iconn Gulden

I am now reading Sinuhe the Egyptian by Mika Waltari.

A wonderful book if you love time traveling. Mika takes you to Egypt, Syria, Babylonia, Creta of the Minotaur and a few other antique civilizations.

I read it in Italian Actually but as I maybe wont be able to finish it in time before moving to Italy, next Wwednesday, I will maybe finish it in English. I found it in the archive. at https://archive.org/details/egyptiannovel00walt 

You can buy the ebook for 5 USD at www.kobo.com.


8th railway safari with SJ.

I had to update my railway safari page with another problem at

www.kinberg.net/wordpress/stellan/safari-with-sj/

8 trips so far  this summer with www.sj.se and not one without problems of some sort.

8. August 22. Stop during Göteborg to Stockholm trip.

|Stop between Herrljunga and Floby with X2000. People running on the rails so the Police stopped the traffic. Waiting for police to take care of these people. I have lucky almost 2 hours in Stockholm before the next train. Never rely on Swedish trains with short stops in between trips.
