Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of October 23. You never know if you need an alibi ! If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.

My weekend is like all the days in last week and will be the next week too, until I fly back on next Sunday.

Observing people is a big work when you are at the beach.

I saw some very touching scenes, like this very old lady who sat in a wheelchair, but with the help of her nurse could sit in the warm salty water and enjoy the waves. Besides the little children building sandcastles and having fun too.

I did a lot of swimming and of course ate a lot too, the food is delicious and it is not the moment to do any diet.

Each evening we have a show at the swimming pool or in the Disco, and on Saturday night it was an Egyptian show with wonderful costumes and dances.

Dina looking for new clients on the beach

On Sunday it was the same whole day, watching people and chatting with Dina and her friend, they are both working in the beauty shop and do massages. They are such nice girls and are always coming to say hello and to chat.

The Belly Dancer

and the little boys

Sunday evening was a Belly Dancing show which was very nice, so funny to see the little boys yawning and keeping their hands on the ears, they didn't appreciate the round shapes of the lady yet.

After the Belly Dance came a whirling Dervich.

It was really crazy to see him whirling around without getting dizzy ! But then came his 8 year old son and danced exactly like him and then they danced together !

it was just amazing. I was speechless to see this little guy turning and turning. I made a video and I will show it when I am at home again.

What an interesting time you are having, I would love to have seen the Whirling Dervishes, my weekend was very tame by comparison.

Well that is a weekend with a difference.

Maribeth said...

Mine is up too. Seems your weekend was more interesting than mine!

The sun and sea look divine. Glad you're having such a lovely holiday. We missed seeing the Whirling Dervishes in Khartoum. They only performed two hours on a Friday night and we never found the time to go and see this ritual. And yes, like Linens and Royals, my weekend was tame and boring compared to yours! Have a great day. (((Hugs))) Jo

I love Belly dancing. it is a great exercise. Look like you are have fun. the beach looks wonderful!

Melli said...

Yes! These shows each night are more fascinating to me than even the warm sandy beach during the day! I have never seen a whirling dervish and I most definitely WANT to! Of all the travels you do, Egypt is always my favorite!

Loree said...

I mostly did some reading this weekend. Whirling Dervishes ... wow! Quite a sight I am sure.

Looks like I missed a lot of fun.
We had dull wet weather so the week end was spent relaxing and shopping for groceries and picking my son up from his week end trip to the interior.
They are still the number one college team in the nation.
