Tropicana Rosetta Hotel. Quiet nice and the cheese burgers were
We would have had a better

Lots of plates at this book
shop. Not many books.
The main drag in Sharm. I often thought it was like Cancun or maybe
a holiday version of Las Vegas.
Pink car outside the Hard Rock Cafe. Never went in to it but did go
to the Egyptian restaurant above. The food was great going in. Going
out was a little more unpleasant.
