On my way to Mount St. Katherine, Egypt, and possibly the world’s, oldest monastery.
Dahab I was expecting like Sharm, or an old town. Turned out to be an old town.
Here I stopped for some lunch, a haircut and to buy some CD’s for the journey.
Dahab was a pleasant town, less low-key than Sharm. The beach is pebble, so I doubt that it would have attracted the same level of interest as Sharm which has lengthily sandy beaches set against resort after resort.
Dahab is not like that.
I could find more in Dahab and faster, so it made a good stop over point and I got all the things done I wanted to do, here’s some shots of Dahab.
The restaurant I stopped in was called Mummy Funny, I had a Hallal Kebab, which, I guess is an Egyptian meal.
It was beef in spicy sauces with peppers (capsicum), potatoes fried in cumin, served with rice and salad.
Took me 5 minutes to eat it and it went down a treat.
