FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. This was the last week of my holidays in Hurghada at the Red Sea. The days were like usual,breakfast, swimming, laying at the beach but
we also had a belly dance show in the evening
We hadn't been in the town yet so we took the taxi (see post below) and did our little shopping.
The town as usual is very busy and everybody wants to sell you something
We watched for a while this artisan who engraved plates, vases etc.
a special artwork, filling in colored sand in bottles making little designs
It's also funny to watch people playing Boccia.
4. and then the last day arrived and we had to fly home. As the weather became quiet windy and rather cool only 24 instead of more than 30°, we didn't regret too much.
Our plane was 1 1/2 h late due to the heavy traffic in Hurghada, and we hang around in the airport for 4 h !! We looked in the hundreds of little boutiques and of course bought things in the freeshop.
Chantal's wheelchair assistance worked perfectly this time and we were not the only once ! there were 7 wheelchairs a whole convoy ! We waited to get into the truck with elevator to be "loaded" into the plane
and as you can see everybody found it quiet funny and made pictures.
The flight was quiet and we finally arrived in Brussels at nearly 8 ! Long day !
and this little man, my grandson Toby had his first birthday this day. We will go to Amsterdam tomorrow and celebrate this big event !!
