Photographer's Note

Three photos from Hurghada fishing harbour.
Hurghada is a beach resort town stretching some 40 km (!) along Egypt’s Red Sea coast. It is rather horrible. The luxury resorts for tourists are surrounded by incredible ugly places. full of dirt and garbage. Staying in the resort with all-inclusive is for me something incredibly boring. But in spite of it, with some effort, one can find fascinating places. The fish market is the most interesting I have ever seen. I have shown already the market for locals in Dahar. The new marina is touristy but elegant and nice. A trip with a boat with glass windows to observe the underwater world is also nice.

My trip to Egypt might be seen as controversial. Is it safe to travel to Egypt?
I think yes. I moved alone around in the afternoon and night and I felt safe. Of course, the souvenir vendors or horse carriage drivers can be annoying, but when I walked fast and showed no interest, it was OK. And the situation with the pandemic is much better than in Poland. When I came back, I had the test made at the Warsaw airport, I was negative. :). I had a fabulous trip and my decision to go was a good one. I was tired, so it was a fantastic opportunity to rest.

2021 is behind us. It was not only bad, but it was also a tragic year. We lost our friend Serghei here on TE, I lost a few other close friends. Let's hope for a healthy 2022.
