The wind that started to pick up last night continued to build. Wheras yesterday the water was like a mirror today it looks like storm surf - no snorkling today. After shooting pool, reading, having a big lunch, etc. the wind was still around, so I decided to walk to Dahab City, the new part of Dahab, just a couple kilometers South. I spent a hellish three hours hiking to and around the town. It was an unpleasant walk to an even more unpleasant town. Nothing was alive, there were no stores, and few people, just lots of half finished apartment buildings, and a shanty town. It looked like there were some nice hotels on the water, but I didn't bother looking closer. I caught a taxi back to Assalah (the old, Bedoin part of Dahab). When I got home the right sides of both my feet were raw and hurting from the sand blown by the wind.
No variety tonight. Went to happy hour at Nesima and dinner at the Shark Club - again.
