    Red Sea Treasures


    The Red Sea is considered as a separate eco-system, being only connected at its southern end to the Indian ocean (that is until recently, a little over a century, when the Mediterranean Sea was connected to it by the Suez Canal.

    This isolation, has caused the Red Sea to be unspoilt over the eons. Its corals are still in good shape compared to other regions of the world where human activities take their toll on the environment.

    Egyptian Humor: Nokat, Jokes نكت مصرية


    Egyptians are known to crack up new jokes every day. If the joke is not on politics, rulers, daily life, Upper Egyptians, then it is on themselves. Jokes help the average Egyptian get along with crowded streets, the boss at work, the spouse at home, and many other daily ordeals.

    Here is a list of sites that you can visit to get lots of jokes.

    Rayyan Valley


    The Rayyan Valley lies about 20 km west of El Fayyoum, a fertile depression south west of Cairo, Egypt. It is visible from any airplane passing over the area, where the two lakes (see below) are clear. It is a spectacular view to see the Fayyoum oasis, surrounded by desert and barren mountains from all sides, Lake Qarun from the North West, and the life-giving Bahr Youssef (a tributary from the Nile River).

    Below are some pictures. Here is another link to Rayyan Valley photos by an Egyptian Canadian.

    Desert Hare Hunting


    There are lots of wild animals in the desert. One of them is the desert hare. It is occasionally hunted for sport and for its gamy meat. During the hunt outlined below, two adult hares were shot. Their meat is delicious: dark and gamy, and has a unique flavor, reminiscent of wild fowl.

    The technique of the hunt is quite challenging for such a small quarry. It has to be done in complete darkness. The 4-wheel drives wander in the desert until a hare is spotted (via the headlights), then the chase begins. The hunter uses a regular shotgun to shoot the hares. Because of the sand dunes and the rough terrain, there is an element of danger and risk always looming.
