THURSDAY THIRTEEN




13 things about our hotel

1. It is located in the middle of a very busy and noisy town

2. As soon as you go through the entrance you are in another world

3. There is an army of gardeners who take care of the parc the whole day

4. It is amazing that in the middle of the dessert the grass is so green and the flowers so beautiful, as soon as they get water

5. The hotel is almost a little village. There is so much space so that they can built large and not high

6. Besides some rooms in the main building the guests are hosted in bungalows or flats with little patios.

7. There are two big swimming pools

8. The beach is sandy and the water very warm. The water is so salty that it carries you even when you are not swimming

9. Beautiful colorful little fishes are swimming around you

10. It gets dark very early at 4.30 pm and all of a sudden. It happened that I washed my hair and wanted to dry it in the sun, but the sun was gone

11. There are a lot of diving clubs.

12. People are extremely friendly, are funny and laugh all the time

13. 4 times a day the "Musim" calls for prayers, but so far I haven't seen anybody who would interrupt his work for that.

Look at the wonderful night pictures you can take now with your new camera!!
Those colorful flowers are bougainvilleas, I love it when they mix different plants and colors.
I guess it is pretty quiet since children have school ...

I haven't been to Sinai in so many years. I'd love to go back, but sadly it just isn't safe for Israelis right now.

Oh lovely
I love fancy hotels, er um, I mean my mom does.
Anything not fancy is "camping" and she does not like camping at all!

Looks like Hurghada has developed quite a lot since the last time I was there, but it's nice to see that the water is still so clear.

Melli said...

You have NO shame to make me so jealous, do you?! I want to swim with the pretty little fish...

Looks Paridise. I accept to change my place with yours.
I didn't know you were posting from Egypt.

Bonne fin de semaine, Gattina. Make the most of your holidays time.
