Oceans

I have now managed to dip into three oceans – the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian!  Here’s the view of the Red Sea from Ain Suhkna, about 1 1/2 hours away from Cairo through the desert.  I wish I had the guts to take a picture of the women swimming in Burq’inis, but it seemed too disrespectful.  Women on the beach would bathe in everything from itsy bitsy bikinis to full burqas.  Which surprised me – I originally thought a Burq’ini was going to be a resort drink.  D’uh.  Instead it is a modest diving suit with hood covering a woman from the top of her head down.  It’s a very odd site to see a woman swimming with full coverage next to a man swimming with very little (so little you occasionally wished he had more) coverage.

The view includes the mountains off in the distant desert.
