... ooh aaye a greaaat gaaame... SPASIBA'. Priceless. Luckily their English wasn't good enough to pick up the sarcasm, otherwise the woman might have beaten us up... She was bigger than the guy, not fat, I mean muscle. Some stereotypes aren't true, some are, and some aren't true enough.

... anyway, let alone with not much sleep for 2 nights and no food! I have now done Sinai twice in my life and don’t plan to do it again!! It is an amazing place though.
