After a 1 month stay in Dahab we left for Nuweiba which was further up the Sinai coast. We didn’t stay in the town of Nuweiba but just outside it in a small Bedouin beach camp with a few simple huts. We stayed there for 5 nights. We got the first 2 front huts of the camp so we could see the sea from the bedroom.
The huts only consisted of a few basic shelves with a big double bed so we got 2 huts.
We didn’t do much apart from read, write, play with Jedders, eat ,explore and watch music next to the fire at night.
Jed and TUT went in the sea on the first day but apart from that none of us went in as it looked cold (and it was).
Patricia (part owner) was a very nice person who showed and explained things to us. On the third day she showed me where a Dub (I don’t know how to spell it, that’s what Patricia said it was called) lived. A Dub which is said “Duub” lazy like, is a type of lizard which grows to about 1 metre long but this one was only small. I got some good pictures but I wasn’t allowed to tell anyone where it lived because she said that the Bedouins’ like to eat them and will try and find it.
On New years Eve we just sat around the fire and drank Bedouin tea whilst listening to music and watched fireworks going off. It was a great peaceful stay but the only bad thing was that we all became ill.
TUT was ill first then mum and then yes I had to turn ill on the day we had to travel through the borders. They got to stay in bed and I had to sit in a car and so on…. But it was great apart from that. Everybody there insisted that it was bad cold as it was turning colder but who knows?
See you in Jordan!
