Provisioning here is proving to be a bit difficult. There is not much in the
way of a regular Egyptian community out here in the desert. The hotel nearby
has a stiff price list for boat food but even so they could only supply
about half of what we wanted. We have some beer and chocolate now though so
things are not critical.
We have been hanging out at the Grande Café where they do a Happy Hour from
8 till 10, two-for-one Sakhara lager and a nice grilled chicken. I even
tried a shisha pipe but it was only for the cinematographic effect.
There is something a bit Hollywood about these Red Sea diving resorts and it
wouldn't surprise me to see Indiana Jones racing around in the marina.
Perhaps making a sequel called 'Raiders of the Lost World ARC'?.
