One of the guys who walked up Mt. Sinai with me. Chris was a life-saver. He kep on telling "Just another few miles" as he walked with me at the rear of the group walking up the mountain. I believe he was an Aussie or a Kiwi who had just finished his graduate studies and was going to London for a job. I think he said it was going to take him 6 months to get there. Long walk.

One of the coffee shops that are set up to sell stuff to hikers going up Mt Sinai. Everything was 10 Epyptian Pounds – a little less than $2.

Guess who? Guess where?

Yes, there is a sun and, yes, it does rise over Mt. Sinai.
Coffee shop at the top of Mt Sinai. Coffee shop Number 5. It was to be where the group met at the top.
This is the only sanitary facility I could find at the top of Mt Sinai. I got lucky. I didn’t need to use it.
Yes, that’s me and my trusty steed. Yes, that’s an Arab in the background. Yes, those are palm trees. Yes, Iam at an oasis in the Sinai Peninsular.
