Forever Dahab (Saturday, June 5)
Dahab is the antidote to everything in Egypt. Breeze-rustled date palms. Sun-bleached cushions stacked on worn rugs. Kittens rushing for your grilled calamari. Vertigo as you snorkel over a reef that plunges into the ocean floor. Yoga in the half shade, half sun of a baking roof deck. Giant platters of rice and chicken shared with friends. Meeting Bedouins for sage-sprinkled tea. And sheesha, always sheesha, in mango, peach, apple, honey.
Thanks to Beth and Kareem for the lazy days ... til next time, kids. Love.
