Getting Away

Dahab, Sinai Peninsula, Egypt

With the semester finally over, my hot water heater still out of service, and most of my friends back in America for the holidays … I needed desperately to get out of Cairo! I didn’t take my bathing suit. Between the cool (by Egyptian standards) weather and the recent reports of shark attacks in Sharm al-Sheikh, I didn’t suppose I’d want to swim, and I didn’t. But I did take my camera, and spent quite a bit of time photographing.

I have to say, being an enigmatic lone traveler is not for me. I know that some people are good at getting out and introducing themselves to new people and striking up conversations. I did have a few interesting conversations. A young woman I ate dinner beside the first night is studying construction economics in London. Another woman was on the lingering last leg of a world tour. But generally speaking, I find traveling alone to be more lonely than fun!
