Relaxing

we contacted samegypt tours one day before arrive to book this trip. wonderful In the middle of the desert, not far from the beauty of the Red Sea, is this place built for peace and quiet, but is buzzing with pilgrims. It was amazing to think about the men who spend their entire adult lives there.
