The Red Sea is NOT Red
Just back from a press trip to Egypt. Truly humbling to stand next to a 5,000 year old pyramid towering toward the sky and wondering how they did it without heavy equipment. Conversation after conversation with the locals turned into Obama talk. They were all very excited for our new president. Sharm el Sheik on the Sinai Peninsula was a nice Red Sea beach scene. Although the Red Sea was not red, it was more of a bluish green watery color. This was the only beach I have been to where one could view a fully clothed in black with only the eyes showing (Bedouin), a nice good old fashion western woman (Bikini), a modern fully clothed from head to toe Muslim women (Burqa) and a more liberal european fashion of topless (Breasts). Bedouins, bikinis, burqas and breasts!
