leaving dahab

after about a week relaxing in dahab, this morning i had my final breakfast of turkish coffee and banana pancakes on the beach, burned my latest photos to CD, and packed up my backpack.

it's time to head out to luxor via an all-day set of connections via a bus, a ferry, and then a bus again (dahab -> sharm el sheik -> hurghada -> luxor). i'll spend a few days exploring the famous tombs (including, i hope, king tut's tomb) for my last few days in egypt. i've changed my onward plane tickets to tanzania a bit to allow this extra time in egypt -- luckily i have a great travel agent who is really flexible about these things!

looking forward to reporting online the results of my adventures in luxor (and steeling myself for egyptian city life after a week where the biggest pressure i've encountered was from overzealous restaurant touts).
