Last full day in Egypt.
I woke up feeling much better. I guess I was just exhausted. I headed out to the lobby shop only to find out that it was closed. I went back to my room and got my belongings. I had to leave them with the front desk, which I was not happy about. I got my towel and ate my breakfast. I ran into the twins who said they weren’t coming on the boat. A part of me wished I wasn’t going either. I was worried I would be ill.
Sherif walked us to the boat and most people signed out equipment. The boat was called El Prince Shady. We sat on the top of the boat and it was beautiful. Sherif and the boat owner joked about pushing me into the water in Arabic. Somehow I understood them and told them to not even think about it. This made them laugh. I decided to change into my bathing suit and at least dangle my feet over the side of the boat. The water felt nice. Sherif made me hold onto the ladder and go into the water up to my chest. The schools of fish were really cool to look at. The boys jumped off of the roof of the boat. The staff on the boat cooked us lunch, though it looked appealing it didn’t smell that way when they were making it. I ate my animal crackers. Sherif had never heard of them. I put a cover up on and sat on the top as we sailed back. The water was perfect and we had a wonderful breeze.
We went back to the hotel and the girls all changed in one room. I realized I burnt my shoulders on the boat despite the sunscreen. The bed in the room we changed in had a canopy which was cool. I gave in my towel and the guy gave me a hard time about getting my card back. He didn’t believe I had the right room number. After that I went to the lobby shop, which was finally open. I bought some mirrors. The shop guy was really freaky. He read my name off of my cartouche and wanted me to sit with him. I didn’t. He wound up giving me a hair scrunchie. I used the bathroom and got on the bus.
