You made it to Dahab! Lucky sod. Do the cafes still have hand-lettered signs listing all their cassette tapes?

Aghia Katerina - One of the monks told me that bush is 10,000 years old and it's a unique subspecies. Nice to see it's still there. Should snarf a twig if you can. Then again, it might burst into flames again at an inopportune moment. You never know these days. There used to be some great rocks lying around the mountain there with bits of fossilized ferns etc.

You did bring an underwater camera I hope? I'm heading off into snow country later this week & would love to see the beautiful fish where you are.
