Michael (my remaining housemate) out of the blue asked me if I wanted to go to Houdada tomorrow. It’s a smallish fishing village on the Red Sea. Sounds good to me, we might also go to another village nearby and make it a two day trip. We’ll have to see if he can arrange a car and driver on such short notice, but I’m optimistic, he’s been here many times before and knows a lot of people in these sorts of jobs. With any luck I’ll be swimming in the Red Sea this time tomorrow!
