Grind

But will they let you drink and dive?
Jones the Steamed

Didn't do any diving just some snorkelling which was mind blowing, like swimming in a marine fish tank full of super sized coral and multi coloured fishy things.  Slightly perturbed that a few Russkies have lost a couple of limbs and the odd hand in shark attacks earlier this week so maybe it was a good thing I got knocked back from doing the PADI course.

Hilton's a plastic resort next to the airport, ok for chilling, being super lazy just slurping liquids, eating very tasty food and getting the shits.

Had a mate call me when over there to put me on to a 'magic bean' scheme, I bought a load of legal medicine shall we say and stuffed it in my case.  Got to the airport where all bags are scanned before you even check in, cue Egyptian customs nailing my case getting me to open it at the end of the roller conveyor just after the scan.

"What's this?"

"Medicine"

"Problem"

"But I bought them from a chemist just down the road"

"Come"

He then takes one of the carrier bags full of what has suddenly turned to contraband over to his mate on the scanner screen and makes a show of opening a box with the words.

"Big problem"

The good guy then says.

"My friend can help you"

Bemused look by me then he says

"How much"

The Egyptian pounds start reeeling around in his head so I say.

"500"

Quick assessment by my tormentors and they come back with.

"800"

"OK"

The carrier bag of goods is then stuffed back in my case at the end of the roller conveyor and I'm told to bring my passport back to them with the backshees stuck in it.

Mrs Jones is proper pooing herself and I'm still getting flashbacks from the 10 episodes of 'Banged Up Abroad' that I'd devoured on Nat Geo Adventure in the last 10 days.

Stupid, stupid, stupid, I know but them 'magic bean' stories get to the best of people sometimes.

Re the limbless Ruskies, i guess they should have read the names on the brochures, kinda gives you a clue

Thay have cancelled all water sports in SeS due to the number of shark attacks, I was hearing on the radio yesterday.

Not good news for a place that is wholly built on water sports.

Maybe they should give it the world cup
