Sea Sun and Silence
I discovered this place by chance...stopping the night bus between Cairo and Sharm along the red sea coast. It was about five in the morning and the day was growing up. I had seen "BASATA" as a kabalistic word on my roadmap and thought, "yes, this sounds good". Here is a postcard-like picture (usually i don't like postcards) of it. It's an ecolodge owned by a german woman married to an egyptian. No music, no disco, no night clubs... just sea, sun, sand and silence.
The perfect place for a lonely monk like me...
I woke up the keeper. He gave me a small bamboo case and i fell on the "kilims" floor as a pilgrim who arrives in the sanctuary after a long journey....
when i woke up, the sun was rising high.
I shot the picture.
Eden is here, i thought.
