Awaiting the Next Part

Well, Amy and I made it safely back to Cairo from the backpacker town of Dahab.  Dahab is a laid-back little town with loads of restaurants (some good, some not so good).  We splurged and stayed at a nice resort with a swimming pool and private beach.  The sea water is so salty you could float without really trying.  It was an odd feeling.  I can only imagine what the Dead Sea (which is even saltier) would feel like.  Oh, and we could see the Saudi Arabian coastline from the waterfront.

We took the one-hour flight as opposed to the nine-hour bus back to Cairo.  Amy left this morning so I am once again on my own for awhile.  I have come to realize that I really overestimated how much time I need in places when I planned this trip.  So, now I’m stuck in Cairo for four more days with nothing really to do because I’ve seen all I want to see.  Luckily, I’m staying at a great hostel where I don’t even really need to leave (well except to eat but even the fast food restaurants here deliver).

    Hi Stacy,

    You must be melting away with all that heat. Do you want to borrow some rugs to keep warm once you return home LOL.

    I spoke with Amy and your Dad the other day to catch up. I enjoyed Amy’s stories.

    I like what Michelle said…..ditto for me “Keep writing and I’ll keep reading.

    Love you Aunt Kathy
