Where I stayed
Snorkeling, showers, aircon, frosty adult beverages, swimming pools, robes, you name it, we've done it, and it's been a welcome diversion from the daily grind of life on the road. As Ferris Beuhler would say, "If you have the means, I highly recommend it."
Last night we had an interesting experience
One should not eat a type of cuisine anyplace where you cannot determine that anyone from that cuisine's land of origin actually lives.
For example: Mexican food in Israel. Far as I can tell, no Mexicans live in Israel, so you probably aren't going to get the best enchiladas in Tel Aviv...
Now, I don't mind telling you that, at this point in the trip, I was little tired of pita and humus EVERY meal. On top of that, I love me some Pad Thai. On top of that, I figured there have to be Hyatts in Thailand right? Someone, somewhere in the Hyatt organization must have told these people how to make Thai food...right?
So we march into Sala Thai, sit down, and I order chicken pad thai. On the menu under Chicken Pad Thai it says, "Chicken, Thai noodles, eggs, and thai vegetables," which sounds about right. So what sent me and Amber into fits laughter was that when the pad thai got to my plate, well... for lack of a better way to describe it... it was... an omelet.
Yup, all those ingredients were wrapped up, INSIDE the eggs... good times!
Anyway, we are sufficiently recharged, and are heading for a two-three hour bus ride up the coast to Dahab.
