Red Sea Divers
I'm on a boat in the Red Sea and Kubi, my dive instructor who looks like an Arabic snoop dog gives me a crash course on scuba diving on our way to the dive-destination. V has dived many times before and so have the four Germans, one of the 2 Japanese girls on our boat has become sea-sick from her first boat ride and is giving her breakfast to the Red Sea.
Sink or swim, the first dive is so-so as I attempt to become accustomed
to the concept of playing fish, the second dive is great and I see why
scuba-diving is so addictive. Imagine, my first dive in the Red Sea at
a spot called Fanadis. The Corals, the fish, the sea, amazing!
On the boat ride back to Hurgada it finally hit me, I'm in Egypt and over
the past 6 days I've been by Plane, Train, Auto, Motorcycle, horse back,
horse carriage, boat and scuba. I've been inside of a Pyramid that was
built over 4000 years before Christ and to 21M deep in the Red Sea swimming
with the Fishies, it doesn't get much better than this. We've had enough
of Hurgada, there really isn't much else to do than dive; mission accomplished;
and so we decide to return to Cairo in the morning. The locals in Hurgada
are much more relaxed than Luxor or Cairo a Hawiaan/Caribbean vibe. After
dinner in the City we return to the hotel stopping by the dive shop buy
Kubi a Stella and then head home to the Sea Reef for more shisha. Shisha
good, smoke shisha be happy.
