• non-touristic Egypt
We exchanged swimming in the sea with a mask on Al-Tour - a small town 100 kilometers from Sharma. Despite the fact that it is home to only 16,000 inhabitants, it is the administrative center of South Sinai.
Even away from Sharm suddenly met vazovskaya classics.
Petrol cheaper in the country, but it is not enough, and it often happens that charging just do not work.
But a well-developed culture decoration machines. Moreover, it is still a light version.
But with diesel in Sharm tight. This is a huge place for a couple of kilometers to the diesel column.
is a local eatery on the outskirts of Sharma. I think I first saw the jacket Adibas!
Cap says it is a pharmacy.
The local Bedouin.
The next checkpoint on the road. I doubt he on something can help, but a lot of them. Especially in Sharm.
My camel is always with me!
The new quarter in al-Tour, built for the Bedouins. It is not very clear he is ready or has simply not completed, but several houses were residential apartments.
And this domestic goats in the old quarter.
Who will recognize that for pepelats?
The typical house. Pay attention to the right-hand side - all communications are out.
An unidentified device.
We went to the local market. Several women who trade on it, just wrapped in a veil. Our guide warned in advance that the women we did not think to photograph. Is that a big focus of the corner. A photo on some local vegetable resembling potatoes to taste.
But the local youth photographed with pleasure.
A small bakery where they bake cakes.
The town is dirty. But this is, as I understand it, any Egyptian city.
Some kind of dispenser, which supplied drinking water to the population in a better life.
Check out the size of the fish!
We had a guide who can overcome the language barrier. Here everyone speaks only the local language.
In general, the history of the city dates back to Pharaonic times.
You can repair your boat.
Or to take it apart.
Border post on the coast.
The package includes a service camel.
A large complex called "Baths of Moses." Here and cafes, a hotel, and, in fact, swimming itself.
The pool - a stone basin, which drains water from the sulphurous five artesian springs with temperatures around 37 degrees. Please note the swimming pool in front of the building.
This is a technical pool, where the water settles and then another passed through the filters. If a dip in this water - will not find it. Plaque in Russian as it suggests that such cases happen frequently.
A very sulphurous water is used to treat rheumatism and skin diseases.
The hotel is nearby. Built for the locals. Very simple conditions.
Brochure from the hotel. Ostriches run out!
Severe Egyptian benches.
One of the buildings.
The typical number.
And this is the owner of the baths, hotels and cafes - Madame Rome. Generally, an atypical pattern for Egypt, when a woman is engaged in business. But, as explained by the guide, their women are not forced to wear the burqa and sitting at home. It all depends on the family and on themselves.
Back in El-Tor.
Church of the prophets Moses and Mark. In Egypt about 10% Christians. It's Coptic Orthodox Church. Only noticed now look at the crosses on the towers - they are three-dimensional.
In my opinion, a mixture of Catholicism and Orthodoxy.
Kote in a shop window.
The local eatery for their own. Our guide knows the good places. Here you pick the meat, it is cut and cooked in your presence. And it's worth it all some funny money. If you look closely, then stump for chopping equipped hungry kote.
In general, local willingly photographed and the camera did not catch.
Welcome back to Sharm!
