FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. This week started with a wonderful sunshine from 6 am til 4.30 pm, the night arrives very quickly here at the Red Sea in Egypt. When I wake up in the morning I can see the blue sea and blue sky from my bed. This itself already boosts my moral which had been heavily damaged lately. I had the feeling to walk on a cliff, just ready to fall into a deep hole.
The view I have from my bed
2. It's just wonderful to lay the whole day on the beach, watching people and swim in the blue warm water surrounded by little striped fishes who look like little zebras.
There are lots of activities for young and old, organized by an animation team, like acqua gym, Volley ball, Petanque (the french game with metal balls) etc and kids have fun too they build pyramides and sandcastles so I have a lot of work to observe all the people and see what is going on.
This young woman tried to find new clients for her beauty salon and was doing anti stress massages on the beach. I could hear the young man purring like an old cat ! I have booked for 4 times and had already two, they really do it very well and it costs not even the half of what I pay at home.
4. We already tried 3 of the 4 restaurants which are all very good. There is one we go to for breakfast, it is directly located on the beach. Another one has "normal" food, a big choice on a buffet and there is also one which only serves oriental food, in which of course we are going every evening ! Just delicious. They have Egyptian, Morrocan, Libanese etc food. We enjoy very much the oriental atmosphere in there.
Mini Michael with the girls from the animation team
Each evening there is a show, sketches or theater performed by the animation team which is very good. Yesterday evening a little 6 year old English boy danced as Michael Jackson. It was too cute ! He did the moon walk amongst other typical Michael Jackson dancing steps and danced on Billy Jean. I have filmed him because it was so special to see this little man on stage. Unfortunately it takes too long to download and show you I have to do it when I am home. He was there with his parents just as guests ! When they asked him "what is your name" he said "Jackson" !
and another show
Fortunately I have still more than a week to spend here !
