Bur Safajah, Egypt

Sat.may 14. Docked in Safaga.Took excursion to the Sheraton Soma Beach Resort.It is in the middle of nowhere,a huge hotel,marble Interior and lovely beach but nothing around.
The road was excellent but hardly any traffic.The hotel looked new but we were told that it is 13 years old.

There was a large infinity pool
and plenty of space for sunbathing

Several of us returned on the early bus,while others stayed the whole day.
On the way back there was a mermaid with 2 fish in a roundabout

Sun 15th. Took the shuttle to Hurghada,a resort town almost an hour away.It is bigger than Safaga,looked at some shops and got the next shuttle back.
There is so much unfinished building around,hotels,apts.etc.The recession hit hard here.
Tomorrow we arrive in Sharm-el Sheikh.I am not going on any excursion.Mubarak is in hospital here,so I'm sure there will be a lot of security.
