... We finally roll out and start our journey. The desert is amazing - absolutely nothing but sand and rocky outcrops - no green at all and no trees. There are some houses but these are brick and built into the edge of the rocky hills. Occasionally there is one on the side of the road with some straw on the roof - almost just a humpy. Apparently if there is a sky dish on top someone lives there! We pass police posts every few kilometres - some have uniformed police ...

... I expected. There was a crowd of young adults playing with the orange marker tap, yup that was a joy to ride through. One guy was kind enough to do the moonwalk in front of my path for me. Yes, at 30km/hr, my bowls work well. The campsite is lovely, right on the Red Sea, the last day of the Red Sea before we head to Luxor. Camping right on the beach with a bar, 20 Egyptian pounds for a 500mL Stella, that's COLD with ...
