Libya Visa Update
From my contacts in Libya, I am assured that within the next two months, Libya is going to open it doors to American tourists. That is what they are hearing from the consulate. This could be “just talk” but given that an American embassy is being built in Tripoli, I think this could be happening soon.
I am still crossing my fingers for a desert adventure trip this November.
