At the beginning of the ride, the driver decided to blast his personal copy of an Imam for one hour as the ride was getting underway. loud. distortion. old cassette.
As the ride continued, we seem to make stops every hour for passport checks at some random, in-the-middle-of-no-where checkpoints throughout the Sinai Peninsula. As the sun began to rise, we could actually see the town of Sharm up ahead. Alas, one last checkpoint to go through. The guy who came onnboard seemed to have a stick up his ... and was taking forever. He ended up taking three people off of the bus at which time the K-9 team came. Long story short (too late), the K-9 team found a brick and a half of some kind of drug and hauled off a few of the former passengers. Whew! Glad that is over.
