Journal Entry:
Got up early and headed to the Egyption consulate. It took until noon to get my visa. It didn't seem to matter what time you got there, the visas were all done at noon (someone got there at about five til and they had their visas at noon - just like the rest of us).

Spent the afternoon picking up my laundry, exploring the ruins of the Islamic city of Ayla (not much to see as excavations and restoration have hardly started), and just laying on the beach.

Spent the evening packing so I could get an early start and catch the morning ferry to Nuweiba so I can make it to Dahab before dark.
