Journal Entry:
Up early to catch the 7:30 bus to Sharm el-Sheikh and Dahab. The unexciting ride got us to Dahab just after five. We checked in to the Auski Camp (same place Amy and I stayed) but their rates have gone up and I think we can find better value elsewhere so we'll probably only stay a night or two.

Walked into the village and checked out a couple dive shops. So far we liked Poseidon the best (the place Amy got certified and that I dove with two months ago). Tomorrow morning we'll check with one more club then make up our minds - if all goes well, we should be in the water tomorrow!

We had an early dinner at the Shark's Club (still the best milk shakes!) then had a couple beers at Nesima's happy hour.
