Lovely hotel setting. Out of town but has a shuttle. Rooms OK, but as with many others, has a thick bed cover, no upper sheet. A really silly idea in such a hot climate, requiring the air conditioning on all night!
Calling it a beach is a big misnomer, you can't really get into the water as there are large rocks and coral. I was subsequently told the larger hotels in town have an actual beach with sand.
Breakfast plentiful but strange combinations and presentation.They also do not seem to think sometimes people like milk with their coffee.
Swimming pool was lovely.

What a day! In spite of 40 C temperatures and a sand storm, we made it to Petra and had a fabulous time. Eight of us had a private tour guide to take us through this wonder of the world. We left the ship at 7am and eight very tired, hot and dirty tourists returned at about 5:30pm. The drive to Petra took about two hours through some of the driest wilderness I have ever seen.

Film tonight is The Gambler with Mark Wahlberg so here's hoping it's a good one. Will try and catch up with Linda and Robin for a coffee before retiring. ...
... I've now seen camels both in the camp and also wild out in their own environment, sometimes it's the little things that please!!! Interestingly, when you think desert you think HOT, in reality yesterday was the coldest day we have had since Shanghai! Day at sea today, transiting the Suez Canal tomorrow, very excited about that....not so excited about having less than two weeks of this trip ...
... to just pay Audi because “he’s my brother”. The ride was very pleasant – the burros were sure-footed and the ride was smooth. We tried to get a carriage to ride back to the visitor’s center, but there were a lot of people waiting, so we decided to walk. We walked all the way through the Sig (uphill!) and were getting really tired when we got to where we could get a horse ride. It was getting close to the time we were supposed to meet the guide and ...
