Suez Canal

Port Said is at the northern endf of the Suez Canal. We started transiting the canal at 6 am and arrived here at 4 pm. The Suez Canal has one way traffic and ships travel in a convoy. We were the first of 20 ships and were led by an Egyptian navy ship. Sand, sand, and more sand.

Sharm El Sheikh

Sharm El Sheikh is located on the southern tip of the Sinai peninsula. It is an international resort where several world summits have been held. We realized from speaking with local people on the street that there is a strong anti-American sentiment. We drove past a hospital which was...

Egypt

We went to Hurghada, about one hour drive away, to the biggest beach resort in Egypt. It was very modern with 5-star resorts which cater to Europeans on holiday. It was very eerie since there was not a single person on the street, the outdoor restaurants, cafes, etc, were empty and most of the...
