2. Week's Favorite
Water with a view on Hurghada (Egypt)
My favorite, I first wanted to run away because I thought it was a huge spider, then I thought it's only an algae, but it was really a water spider with a very complicated scientific name !
Unfortunately I can't show any tool, because I am on holidays and I don't work or see tools ! !

This night I woke up because the wind was howling around the hotel and it was cool in my room. I got up and closed the window. In the morning, no sun and only 23° What a difference to the day before ! Chantal felt much better and could even eat a little breakfast.
We decided to take a taxi and do some shopping. The girl at the reception had told us that we should go to "Cleopatra" which is a big store with fixed prices, otherwise you always have to haggle. I like
haggling, Nicole and Chantal not at all.
The hotel taxi was very cheap we could hardly believe the price ! For 6 € he drove us to the shop
quite far away and back ! That's less that our bus fees home !
The shop was very nice 4 floors with everything, food, souvenirs, jewelry, leather things, clothes, we could buy all what we needed ! After 1 1/2 h the driver picked us up and drove us to the hotel. Nicole had bought mugs and spices, Chantal a silver ring, tea and also spices and we all bought little things for Christmas. After lunch we tried to stay a bit on the beach but it was so windy and cool that we only stayed for an hour and then we had enough.
Yesterday evening was a show with a Dervish and belly dancers, but as we had seen that so often we preferred to stay a bit and have a night cap in the hotel "living" and chatted with another French girl. This year there are many French speaking people here, that has never happened since I come here for the eights time.

Nicole and I working ....
There are also a mother with 4 Teenage daughters who spoke such a strange language I couldn't find out what it was. Finally the curiosity won and they told me that they were coming from Lapland !! I asked why Father Christmas was not with them, and they said that he prefers staying in the room !
