Having just flown back to Cairo tody after a break up there would have thought Naama Bay was so full of Brits that its not a problem meeting people for a beer and chat...............

I intend to go there once a month for a few days break from Cairo so will contact you when next up there. Mind you having seen the rip off way of life up there in hotels would appreciate any advice before I go next time to where to stay and eat etc. Anyplace but the Continental Reef Resort and Food Poisoning Emporium.

There are no specific meeting places for expats in Naama Bay, but you find them everywhere!! Camel Bar, Tavern Bar, Underground cafe to name a few. Maybe it's not easy to find expats amongst the tourist masses, but you can soon spot the difference.

About places to stay, if hotels rip you off then just rent an apartment for a few days. Not too expensive and much better than food poisoning. Most places to eat out are pricey, but there are still some nice and reasonable places around, depends what you are looking for.

many thanks for the info................

will certainly take advise on suggestions. As I am in a Cairo apartment though a bit of Hotel comfort for a few days appeals now and then. But the bars sound good anyway although these days 2 pints and I am done !

Yes, I know what you mean, I love staying in hotels every now and then. But if so, at most go for a B&B basis rather than all inc. or otherwise, and avoid the eggs, lol. I'm sure it was always the eggs that gave me a funny tummy here.

2 pints in this heat and I think anyone's done. I'm certainly on my way after a few sips

If you go to Camel ask about the Camel card. It's free and gives you discount on all f&b.

Have you tried Dahab? Much cheaper and I prefer the atmosphere there. But some people find it a little too chilled and full of backpackers.

sounds like I should stay in bars and avoid food.

I committed the loony error and being an expat for years I should have known better - I ATE THE SALAD as did my two sons. We spent 36 hours on tablets water and toilet seat. Will be etched in my mind forever

thanks all for suggestions.

will advise when there next in S e S and we can discuss poisonings we have known !

Hi I am thinking of moving to Alexandria to take up a teaching position. I am bringing my 14 year old daughter, we are American. Is this a safe place to live? Will we like Egypt?

Hi Carolinat2,

You might want to create a new thread as not everyone looks at this one. Also how did you get a teaching job whilst not in Egypt? I plan to teach in Cairo later this year but can't find any adverts for overseas people.
