I have changed my travel priorities and Libya is now #1 on my list!

After a lot of research I find the area between Bengazi and Tobruk interesting as a location to set up a kibbutz-type of community for burnt-out Europeans. Emphasis would be on creating biomes and proving that anything can be grown in the dessert (or on the Moon). After onsite surveys sponsorship will be found from Caritas, Eden Project, Richard Branson and others....

When Tripoli is freed I hope the ferry from Crete runs again or flights into Bengazi.

Anyone have notes or plans for this region?
