Treasure hunting for Egyptian Bedouin Jewellery

A travel blog entry by rubyroy



In the five years that I have been going to the Sinai I have learned much from the Bedouins. This is one of the ways I learned about the jewellery. Thanks to this I can recognise Old Bedouin jewellery easily and am able to tell from where it comes from which makes the peices even more special.

    I have stayed in Sheikh Salem at least 6 or 7 times since 2005. What I like most about Sheikh Salem is the location, away from the busy part of Dahab, the Arisha and the Bedouin Garlic bread with Cheese. Hmmmm

    It is a little like a home away from home and I do like the people who work there as well as the atmosphere. The rooms are not expensive.

    The rooms are not fancy but spotless and cleaned as are the sheets, the duvets are dry cleaned. What more does a girl need. There are rooms for all budgets.

    The matresses in some of the rooms need to be changed as they can cause back aches and sleepless nights. Which no doubt will be done soon.
    The beach infront is clean and the water is pristine clear and clean.
    The Arisha is the gathering place for everyone and it really is a chilled place with good atmosphere.

    The bedouin bread with garlic and cheese is beyond heavenly.
    The staff are helpful, freindly and try and accomadating.
    Gomma, Mohamed, Mohamed are nice guys who do their best to make guests happy.
