Sharm

Post by Netyoda »

well I'm coming to the end of my first full day in Sharm and it's actually quite nice ;)

Watched the match in The Tavern, sat in reception now as the wifi in my room is charged for but in reception it's free - go figure!

beautiful weather, just wandered around the centre of Naama Bay earlier - tiny little place!

Hopefully I'll manage to drag my sorry arse out of bed tomorrow and get a bus to Dahab. Can't guarantee it tho ;) They have red wine on the AI here so I'm in trouble.

Not been to the camel bar, been to dahab this morning and now sat in a bar on the corner of old Market. Speaking a little arabi goes a long way here!

2 days isn't enough to see anything here, took a couple of short videos which I'll post soon.

Well I've had a busy day, ended up eating dinner with my new mate Ahmed and his mates in his shop - yum! Then he took me to the port to arrange my ferry ticket - good job he did 'cos the official was going home so we went home with him and sorted it there.

He's invited me to Cairo to stay with his family when he goes back in about 20 days, so I'm going to spend a day or two up there :D

There are some fantastic people around. Off to a Bedouin coffee shop with him at 11:30 when he closes shop.

I liked Dahab, unfortunately the people I'd taken with didn't.

A lot of it was closed, probably due to the time of season, and it was a VERY windy day, but I thought it was a lovely bay, reminiscent to me of a plave in Kohm Samui that I loved, with it's glass-fronted waterside restaurants.
