A HARD WORKING DAY IN EGYPT

We have very hard working days. Lieing at the beach the whole day, chatting and watching people is very tiring of course.

Most of the guests are Russians but real once not fro; Ukraine who behaved like primates. These once are nice people and besides the language problem there re no others.

There are also some Germans, some english speaking an very fez french speaking people> I think I ave to learn russian !

The last two days it was very windy and people were running behind their sun hats, cremes, books and other stuff. That of course is very funny especially when they bend over and half of their bottoms are hanging out and you have all sizes from S to XXXL !

At 10 pm we are welcomed in all languages and the programs are announced. It always starts with the sound of a cock, bids and finally with military trumpets. Sleeping time is over.

Every day we are going shopping, i.e. we invade the jeweleries. Yesterday I came out with silver earrings with turquoises and sapphirs for 30 euros (25 $ instead of the 180 he had asked first. Of course I had to haggle very hard and told the man that my husband has not given me enough money, then I took out a tissu and sobbed bitterly because he is such a stingy man and never buys me anything. Of course he complained then that I would ruin him. Ilona got a large silver bracelet with turquoises for 50 euros instead of 150 because her husband had left her for another woman. Chantal got a beautiful silver bracelet also with turquoises, because she had an awful husband who treated her very badly. I told the man she was a beaten woman.

With all these unhappy girls, who laughed and giggled and put the shop upside down, he couldn't do anything else but offer us a nice cup of Karkade tea. Both parties were very satisfied and happy and today we lied at the beach decorated like Christmas trees !

I will put some pictures as soon as they download to Photobucket, Blogger as usual is on strike !
