So exhausted from Cairo that we woke up at 9:30am, just in time for breakfast.
After breakfast (a selection from the buffet - but I just had the croissant, tomato, orange cordial "juice" and coffee) we headed straight for the pool. It was only 10:30am but already HOT. It was 38 degrees today. By 12:15pm it was so hot we had to go to our air conditioned room to order room service - tuna salad.
Then it was back out by the pool for some more sun bathing - slightly cooler in the afternoon.
We decided to walk to the nearby supermarket to buy some food. On the way back I slipped on the steps near the pool and landed HARD on my butt. Ouch! Honi (the captain - who looks after the guests) came running over to make sure I was ok. He even came into our room with a glass of ice and wrapped it in a towel around my bruised arm. So nice.
For dinner we went across the road to the sister hotel, the Falcon Hills. TUrns out the menu was the same anyway as it is the same owners. I decided to have the penne napolitana instead of the usual tuna salad. Big mistake. Straightaway my tummy started cramping. I mean how hard is it to get penne napolitana wrong? It's just pasta, tomato paste and onions!
During dinner we saw the two girls we met at the airport. One was drunk and the other had a severely sun-burned back. Very funny.
Back in our hotel for an early night though as the next day was an early start - day trip to Abu Galum.
