It is Beach Thursday and I have a video that will teach you something naughty 😉 I didn’t even dare to post it on my Travel the Middle East site! See it until the end, as the lesson is on the last half of the Ain Sokhna video:
Beach time! Naughty Arab lesson found at 1:55
Yes, I just taught you the middle finger or Arab sign language for “f**k you.” You know, travel brings many things with it. I can’t just paint a pink picture on my blog every single time. Keepin’ it real! 😉
About Ain Sokhna, Egypt
Literally meaning “hot spring” in Arabic, Ain Sokhna is located in the Eastern Desert and happens to be the highest peak there (Wikipedia). It is a popular beach spot, but mostly to Egyptians. In fact, I didn’t even see one other foreigner during my visit, except for the fellow Couchsurfers that were with us. As I was told by my host Moussa, the resort we stayed at is of mostly middle-class Egyptians.
For your entertainment, photos of the grounds. Enjoy! (Note: Yes, I know I blatantly ignored all rules in regard to how to dress in Egypt or any conservative country, but I was told by Moussa this was a safe spot to wear my tank top. And, as a Latina, feeling ubber liberated, I so did…!)
“Hookah time” looks very tempting.
Hookah time is *always* tempting, let’s be honest 😉
Oh, you make me miss Egypt!!
I’m making myself miss Egypt! 😛 can’t wait to go back
Looks pretty cool. Did you explore those mountains?
I’ve walked by them, but haven’t done much hiking in the Sinai. Most of my time there was spent underwater or in Dahab 😉
This looks like a pretty cool place to be!
It is quite different! If you make it here, you are likely hanging out with a local, which is why I liked it. Made me feel like I was an Egyptian for a day 🙂
