... humid night. Refreshingly objective in his observations and well-informed, I listen attentively. 'It was the corruption that had to stop'.

Of course, dictators are in the business of keeping up outer appearances. It's only since Mubarak was tipped that those slick-oiled cogs of a controlled regime got out of sync and the country really started to grind itself down. My mind wanders to the issues of public security that make everyday citizens ...

Shoes, Shows, and a Showdown

... to the idea had seemed less than positive, I assumed the risk level must be high. My heart had sank as they stressed how far away Sinai was, and how not only would it take ages for them to get to me if anything happened, but how because of The Camp David treaty with Israel, friend SouSou’s father (an important military general :/) would be powerless to intervene. Having said to myself I’ll base my decision on their verdict, I conclude I should ...

... ready and had a great breakfast on the ocean, then had 2 dives scheduled, The canyons and Ricks Reef, did both dives them went back to my hotel to do my last camel ride in Egypt, I was given camel milk, I heard it was very healthy for you, it was pretty salty, I wouldn't drink it again :) but glad I tried it. I decided to go to dinner and went to a chicken place, the guy who owned the travel agency I went to earlier that day sat down next to me to have dinner too, so we started ...

Cairo, Giza, Aswan, Luxor & Dahab Egypt

A travel blog entry by tessrealty

... hours sleep but got up at 10 pm to get ready for my hike up mount Sinai. Below are some pictures of the spectacular Sunrise on top of Mount Sinai this morning, or "Moses Mountain" which is the other name used here in Egypt. It is said this is where Moses accepted the 10 Commandments from God. Mount Sinai is 2,285-metre (7,497 ft), It took us 2 Hrs and 50 Minutes to climb to the top, it was truly the hardest climb I have done so far (since I am not a hiker this will not surprise you) ...

    We quite enjoyed our stay... the building has seen better days, like 50 years ago, but that is what Cairo is all about. The rooms were comfy and clean enough, the terrace breakfast is delightful, and the service was good humoured. The only thing I can't understand is why, with 2 or 3 men hanging around the desk all day, could no one get off their butt and pick up the cigarette butts and tissues lying on the staircase for the three days we stayed. I finally did it myself.

    The Zamalek location itself is a plus, and the grand marble entrance to the building is impressive. The staff is reasonably accommodating. The beds sagged so much that I had to stuff a pillow under me for back support. The mosquitos bombarded me nonstop even though it was December. And the hot water didn't come through one very cold morning. Keep your expectations low when it comes to breakfast. All in all, it's what it is for the price.
