Beers at the pool started at $60EGP ($12Aus) but ...

Everything is duplicated and symmetrical and each god ...
... one filthy city with rubbish and sand piled up everywhere. But we did not feel as unsafe as we did in Naples. We were greeted by lots of children asking what is your name and saying welcome to Egypt. They must be told to say that. Generally the people are very friendly and although some have the ulterior motive of getting cash out of us, most a gracious when you say no and wish you a good day or stay. We saw the housing and little shops all with ...
