A DRIVE THROUGH HURGHADA - EGYPT

Today is the last day of my holidays in Hurghada ! And while it gets colder and colder at home it gets warmer and warmer here. Acccording to the locals it is a very unusual  warm February, normally it is the coldest month of the year which means temperatures around 20 to 25°C.



The  view from our hotel to Hurghada had never been so sharp and clear..

Our French friend whom we had met here 2 years ago, goes each time when she is here to the Copt church which is the Egyptian version of the Orthodox church. I had never been there and of course was curious to see it.

We took a taxi from the hotel, and the driver was well known by our friend. So he drove us around through Hurghada and I could finally take some pictures of the city !



Restaurants, shops and apartments



The very beautiful Mosque of Hurghada



The city has changed very much and became real modern. Far away from the little town I knew 10 years ago where you could hardly walk because the streets and sidewalks were full of holes and uneven. Now it had all been renewed.



The mosque from the other side





Shops all along the streets



The copt church is very beautiful and I will write about it when I am home.



And here we are at the entrance. There were quite a lot of people around, chatting it seemed to me like a meeting point to socialize.

Sorry to hear it is your last day. You will have a very cold welcome when you get home.

Lovely to see the city around! Looks like they paved the streets very nicely! I love the grand display of fruits at store front :-)

Good that you got out and about in the city! The one time years ago when we stayed at an all-in-one resort (in Puerto Vallarta Mexico) it was hard to drag ourselves away to go anywhere else, but we were glad we did it afterwards.

I hope you are dealing with your return to the cold as well as possible. It was the hottest February on record here in our part of Florida as well.
