... fantastic I hope this proves as good though I don't have the same guide or buddy. One part of the dive you descend head first down a chute for 25m. It only takes 45 seconds but it is absolutely amazing.

Sim had no Egyptian money so the taxi driver took him to an ATM, but to ensure we would come back and pay he kept one of the passports which made me a bit nervous. When we came back they were all sitting around having a smoke and eventually one of them walked into the office and processed the payment and gave us the passport ...
