OK...I've said from the beginning that I want to be honest in this journal and the time has come to be just that. This, despite the fact that I know the truth will affect many - will worry many.

Those back home in America will wake up in the next few hours to this story. Dahab is on the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt and I've been looking forward to going there for a very long time. Dahab is where I planned to get my diving certification. I have been talking about it in depth just the last two days as I've shared hostels with people who are doing the reverse of my trip and have recently been to the region.

I'm spooked...and a bit freaked out. I think I've had a healthy understanding of the risks associated with my path but this is the first time an actual "threat" has arisen for me (I'm currently nowhere near there and am fine).

Now might be the time for flexibility. It's much too early to say, but I may need to consider some other options to skip the Sinai or Egypt all together.

We'll see.

On a brighter note I'm catching a bus in a few hours to Bodrum, a city on the sea known for its nightlife. :-) I've also booked a 4 night, 3 day cruise from Fethiye to Olympos leaving Sunday for only $175USD - meals included!
