Remaindered Nuweiba Snapshots
Nuweiba, Egypt

It's a scorching 39°C (102°F) today as we prepare for tomorrow's departure to Cairo. We've enjoyed the past two weeks spent lounging by the Gulf of Aqaba, but there are aspects of our routine here that have begun wearing on us. It's time for a change, and as we're already halfway through our 30-day tourist visa it's about time we figure out just how long we're going to be in the country, and how much of it we'll see.

Below are some of the snapshots that didn't find a place in any previous travelogue posts. First up, some cute captures of Aidric…

Aidric Playing in the Red Sea: …Getting his diaper wet.

Aidric's Simple Red Sea Entertainment: As a 16-month-old Aidric was quite content to simply play with rocks inside an empty can.

Aidric in a White Tunic: For much of our second week at Green Beach Aidric wore this outfit (diaper and tunic), which quickly became dirty beyond our ability to clean it.

Blond Aidric Hiding from a Visitor: A couple came wandering into Green Beach and asked Nasser if he had espresso. …ESPRESSO! Idiots.
