... flagged down a passing repair guy and almost physically brought him to my room. He fixed the electricity problem by hardwiring it around the key lock next to the door rather than replacing the unit. Worked for me.

That damn 2nd dive spot is cursed for us! We had gone there about 2 months ago from Dahab as part of a 3 dive package and that time we had to end the dive early because 3 idiots in our group ****** up. One went 10 metres too deep immediately after we all dove in, another got confused and wandered off to join another dive group and the 3rd dove with a bad sinus cold, had problems with his ...
