... I would ride a camel named Alice. Pretty sure he did not mind. 2 lovely shore dives and then a great lunch of chicken, pita, tahini, and tomato/cucumber salad made fresh for us by the Bedoins. I only did the first dive as I definitely have a cold and I couldn't manage the second one. We rode our camels back while the sun was setting so it was really a great day.

... Passed the next couple of tea houses then arrived at the base of the steps. 750 steps, Julie and I walked up together, about 10 steps at a time before stopping for a sit and a rest (to enjoy the view). Got to the top just before 5, so it took me about 2.5 hrs. Started getting chilly on the top so we needed our jumpers, plus a scarf for me.
