... anyway, I suppose that’s why they all have a swimming pool
The bits of beach I did find just seemed to be a dumping ground for boats anyway
I was hard work trying to find anything worthwhile to photograph, the whole place has a rundown feel and look to it

I must say that I didn’t feel very adventurous at all, squashed on my Thomas Cook Airways flight from Gatwick to Hurghada with the package tour hordes. Screaming kids and suburban couples heading off for their fortnight of sun, sand, sea and salmonella, were not my favourite travel companions, but I did admire their bravery ...
