Venice in the desert

Writes Alex Archer:.. "This post I begin a short series of stories about nepopulyarizirovannom for Russian tourist resort of El Gouna, which is in Egypt El Gouna - a fairly young city City was built in 1990 on more than 20 islands, separated by canals, through which transferred beautiful bridges. This is not a tourist Egypt, as he is accustomed to see eyes Russian tourists ...
Well, like, Hurghada and Sharm, I mean. Venice in the sands as still call this city, it is a completely different Egypt.
Entry into the city itself is carried out with a pass through the checkpoint with a barrier. As soon as you get out of the gate, once you start to strain. Yes, I had just such a sensation at first. City half empty, it is unrealistic for the Arab city cleanliness on the streets (remembering the same Sharm to Hurghada), no shabby and pissed houses and streets, and injured animals around. All very sedate and clean.
were settled in the hotel, we went for a walk around the city. The street is very hot, so the city seemed empty at first. Tourists - on hotels, residents - in their homes, sellers - shopping. Bit poskitatsya their carcasses, we went to lie in the cool pool. With the camera to take a walk around the city, it was decided to go closer to the sunset, when the sun burns your neck over the net in the cap.
And, of course, went to the center.
The bus stop at the entrance to the center.
And here is the entrance to the center "Down Town". At night, the gate is closed. So, "the night was DOWN TOWN, DOWN TOWN remain in")
In the city popular tuk-tuks. Basically all the new, well, or well-preserved. Everywhere laid pavers (paving stone in our understanding, it is difficult to call, but it looks stilnenko).
Go ahead. Houses and cafes.
Currency Exchange on "the main square." You find the protagonist of the photo?)
The city is permeated with channels. It looks like this, of course, very cool. How do you?
Look to the right
to look to the left
Well, that's the camera 360 is not necessary. 360 himself!) Shy local guys. They climbed into the camera when we clicked, and when they put things, embarrassed.
Neto in El Gouna, this experience of misery. Straight, hi class. All clean, neat, pleasant walk. My impressions are positive. In the courtyards found here such street art.
Okay, go on. The sun sank lower and lower on the horizon. People on the street became more and more. In the main square constantly, almost every day there were various activities. Or maybe there was some holiday, I do not know. But hang almost one local. The Egyptians, too, come here to relax. Well here.
In the city there is a museum. Do not go. That there is no idea.
And some eastern city without the shelves of tea, spices and other nishtyak.
A walk through the city, heading back to the hotel. After dinner there! Well, how can this miss?) At last photo with the hotel's roof into the sunset.
How do you like campus? Lovely, is not it? "
