Hi Mariusz,

By Jove, you have written a fabulously detailed and informative and comprehensive note, not just for Craig but also for anyone else contemplating a visit to these parts of Egypt. And I think your advice for would-be travellers should certainly be taken on board by anyone considering a holiday here - a holiday which could not only be relaxing and enjoyable but also very educational too.

But, I'm wondering, you were here twelve years ago in 2007 - do you think it would still be safe to travel these parts today? And would you take a young family these days?

Your photograph is of amazing quality and even more impressively so considering that it was taken with a considerably more basic camera than the one you now use. The light, contrasts and details here are superb.

A perfect presentation for TE!


Kind Regards,

Default To mcmtanyel: not really a hotel

Thanks Murat,
As I wrote in the note this was not really a hotel in the Western sense, just a small restaurant (and not at all bad; I had several nice meals there). It is a peculiarity of India and its neighbouring countries that simple, small restaurants are often called "hotel" without offering any rooms for rents. Don't ask me why. I was confused at the beginning, but I soon learned to tell the difference. In Leh I stayed at a simple but clean and comfortable private guest house. No bedbugs.
