Across the Red Sea are the cities of Eilat on the Israeli side and Egypt a close sight just across the 'beach' from our resort. Saudi Arabia is apparently a 15 minute car trip.

The Germans ate heaps of chestnuts. Okla spent most of the evening taking the **** out of me and Al (mainly Al) and Al was giving back as good as she got. It was a great evening.
