Visiting St. Catherine Village was an alternative to a good and deserved rest after the long drive from Cairo to St. Catherine and a plane that landed at 3 a.m.

Considering the tiredness it was quite a tough decision to make but everything around look so interesting that we couldn't resist to a deeper exploration of the area.

We've been "smart" enough too take the long way (on our way back we discovered a short one which actually was half of the first one), walking from our hotel to the village (probably a couple of km) but it was an interesting experience.

St. Catherine is indeed a village, with poor Bedouin houses, donkeys, camels, a huge "elegant" toilet centrally located, a cemetery, grocery and souvenirs shops, a post office and a "coffe shope" (see my Restaurants tips).
