hkskyline's 2010 EGYPT - A Town in the Eastern Desert

Hurghada is a green oasis at the edge of the Eastern Desert, which is the home of Bedouin nomads. To reach them, we had to take a 4-wheel drive ride into the desert.









Welcome to the moon.







The Eastern Desert is not just sand and rocks. It's also hilly as well.



















Time to experience a run down the slope in the fine sand!



This Bedouin village appears to be a popular tourist getaway. There was another group there with their couple of 4x4 jeeps already. They even had a public toilet.











Serving a cup of coffee in a metal cup - it almost burned my fingers!



Tourists can also try out the camels. These ones are friendlier than those in Giza and the ground is flat so the camel's jerking motions are not amplified by topography.











The buildings were quite spread out given all that space. This is the mosque :









This lady was demonstrating how to roll and cook bread. It didn't take too long to cook and it tasted delicious.







Sweet, camel manure.











In the middle of the desert, vegetation can still grow.



This well is for display purposes only. It is contaminated and cannot be used by the villagers.
