Photographer's Note

Overlapping arches in my hotel at Sharm El Sheikh on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula, with the Gulf of Suez to the west, and the Gulf of Aqaba to the east. There seems to be a dune buggy in the distance. I continued north the next day by bus to Nuweiba. To get to Jordan by boat they would ONLY accept $100 USD (United States Dollars) from all foreigners, except Egyptians / Jordanians, who could pay for the ticket in Egyptian Pounds or Jordanian Dinar. They would not take Euro or Egyptian Pounds from me. When I went to the bank to exchange money for USD, they refused & said it was against the law. They did me a favour. I later read many bad reports on internet about the boat being 18 hours late and additional departure /arrival tax fees, unclean seats and terrible meals. I headed instead to Taba and crossed into Eilat in Israel, which was great, thence to Aqaba in Jordan, also nice. Beware of paying a group travel entrance fee in Jordan if you are a solo traveller, or a duo. It is non refundable at Amman airport despite what the Aqaba border guard told me.
