Hurghada – October 23 through 27
David and I were lucky to get a room at the Hilton in Hurghada. Here we relaxed beside the pool and on the beach for 2 days without leaving the hotel. David and I both had a massage and I had a manicure and pedicure. The restaurants in the hotel were excellent for breakfast and lunch but dinner was not very good. On our third day at the hotel we left at night to go shopping for souvenirs in town and to eat dinner at a Lebanese restaurant. The food was delicious. We managed to haggle for the price we wanted to pay for the souvenirs and gifts we wanted to buy and then took a local taxi back to the hotel.
The last day we were in Hurghada we had breakfast at the hotel then relaxed by the pool. We had lunch at the restaurant by the beach and then relaxed and swam in the Red Sea. For dinner we attempted to find a restaurant near the hotel but could not find one we liked so we returned and had a delicious meal at the Italian restaurant at the hotel. We packed and got to bed early since we were leaving the hotel at 9 am the next morning to catch a flight to Cairo at 10:30 am.
