During our visit in Hurhgada a few years back, we got close to the Egyptian life style.
But first, let me tell you of a luxury breakfast:
One morning we decided to try the hotel’s room service and ordered breakfast to the room. It said on the menu that the price is only 10 dollars. We expected bread, cheese, orange juice and coffee.
What a nice surprise it was to open the door in the morning and see three smiling faces bringing us a huge breakfast. I have never seen this much brought to two people. We were speechless.

The trays were filled with food and we also got sparkling wine. Unbelievable and fantastic.
We had a big window towards the street and we liked to watch the Egyptian street and life style. A Chanell store, which sold bags, clothes etc a bit cheaper than the original Chanel was opposite to the hotel. We visited the store and bought a few nice hoodies. There was so much to choose from. Leather, perfume, t-shirts etc. The store owner was so nice.
Also the locals liked to visit the store.
It was quite a surprise for a Finn to see sheep and goats walking down the street 🙂 It is interesting to experience the difference in cultures.
As we watched the street life, we suddenly focused on the second floor of the Chanell store. The windows were broken, and the apartments looked abandoned. But guess what we saw on the balcony? More sheep and goats 🙂
Our hotel was in the suburbs of Hurghada. Walking down the street we saw just a few restaurants and shops, all close to the hotel. Otherwise it was quite empty.
One evening, while reading our books, we heard loud beautiful music. We opened the window and saw there was a big building to the left of us.
Someone was preparing a party, we thought. Later we understood it was an Egyptian wedding. We listened to the music and watched the people dance and have a great time. Now this was quite thrilling to experience.
No matter if you like to see the pyramids, meet some camels, enjoy water sports or beach life, have new experiences or go diving, I recommend to visit Egypt. It is such a beautiful country with friendly people.
