As our flight was running late - I kept looking to see if Hosni Mubarak had snuck on the plane - I got home too late to write on LJ last night and it's actually too late to be writing on LJ this morning as it's time to go to bed. I'll do two writeups of the trip soon, one of the trip, one of the political situation.

I had NO internet connection whatsoever for six days and Facebook and Twitter were utterly blocked (this before I had left but on Friday the authorities cut off the internet altogether). The only thing I got were some texts from [livejournal.com profile] wechsler which were REALLY useful.

If you want to read about how things went with my trying to finish my open water PADI scuba certification, I put a post up (back dated) here - when you get to that post click next to see what happened afterwards.

With that, I need to get dressed and get to work. In short, WE ARE TOTALLY FINE. Fine fine fine. No chaos or anything in Dahab other than food running low in the grocery stores and difficulty getting money from the banks but that was only on the last day.

Oh yeah. And I totally made it to Petra! WOOOO!
