Inter Housing Expo dedicated
to real estate market
April 23-25, 2007
Thousands of people around the world have already chosen Hurghada as their home, because of the unique combination of beauty, nature and a great international community
real estate
The exhibition will cover the following fields:

  • The turnover on properties in the Red Sea area (Hurghada, Safaga, El Gouna, Marsa Alam)
  • Architecture problems
  • Interior design and decoration's goods (finishing: tiles – marble, painting, air condition; furniture etc.)
  • Garden decoration.


Real Estate & Interiors Fair

People that are buying property in Hurghada, buy more than just a beautiful house in a perfect setting. They buy a piece of heaven, a dream where the sun always shines and water is always turquoise.

Around 1 million tourists visit Hurghada and Red Sea area yearly, but the Egyptian government expects that during the next few years this number will increase into the 5 millions! Hurghada, as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, required a lot of residential areas and accommodation for employees. Hence the property market progressed very fast.

The price value of properties in Egypt (especially in Hurghada) are not very high. Starting from 20.000 U$ we can own a nice property either as a permanent or holiday home.

Beside the attractive price, it never happens that the value of properties goes down. Also, the return of investment can start right after the purchasing of the property. By renting your property you can guarantee a return of investment which can read around 15% up to 24% yearly from the total price.
All the above reasons makes the Red Sea area a very attractive market for Europeans and Egyptians as well. Therefore we decided to organize the InterHousing Expo 2007.

We are waiting for You!

Royal woman in ancient Egypt
Kingship was essentially a male activity in ancient Egypt but queens always had an important role to play
history of Egypt
  Egyptian Princess
In the New Kingdom the Queen became much more prominent and powerful..
Royal women grew very powerful in the New Kingdom and clearly had an influence on the country. One women, Hatshepsut, even became Pharaoh and ruled in her own name for a number of years.

The queen in the Old and Middle Kingdoms
Throughout the Old and Middle Kingdoms the duties of the Queen might be summed up as follows:

  • Provide many children. Succession was much smoother if there was a clearly recognized son whose legitimacy as the new ruler was unquestioned. In an age with such a short life expectancy, it paid to have as many sons as possible to serve as spares.
  • Ensure the smooth running of the palace.
  • If necessary, act as regent if her husband, the king, died before his son was old enough to rule on his own.
  • Give silent support to her husband.
  • Be a passive, but visible, complement to the king.


Royal women in the New Kingdom
In the New Kingdom the Queen became much more prominent and powerful. She acquired in her own right secular and religious titles that carried with them genuine jobs to do and estates with land, servants and administrators to provide an independent income. The title God's Wife of Amun provided the Queen with her own source of money and gave her a considerable degree of independence.

As of Sunday February 4th 2007 Sharks Bay - just north of Naama Bay in Sharm - just got a whole lot cleaner
community news
  Sharks Bay
Under the umbrella of Sharks Bay Umbi Dive Centre, 45 representatives from 11 local dive centres came together to get involved in a reef and beach clean-up day.
Supported by PADI, Project Aware and the South Sinai Association for Diving and Marine Activities (SSDM), the divers collected 12 large flour bags full of rubbish from the reef including an old tractor tyre weighing 30 kilos (pictured). The tyre had been used to pad the jetty to prevent damage to boats.

After the event Sam Kirby from PADI thanked the divers and said that she hoped the initiative would be repeated in other parts of Sharm el Sheikh.
Marawan Ismail from SSDM thanked everyone for their work and said “it was nice to bring all the dive centres together and offered a big thanks to the organisers”. All the centres pledged to come together again in September for a similar event as part of Project Aware’s International Clean- Up Day.

Special thanks go to all participating dive centres: Sharks Bay Umbi Dive Centre, Mr Diver, Emperor Divers, Marina Divers, Colona Divers, Azure Diving College, Scuba Dreamer, Sinai Dive Club, Red Emotion, Freestyle and Aquarius.

Valentine's games from the past
The year is 1928, and the good hostess is planning
a Valentine's party for her friends and family
parents & kids
  Games
With how many Valentine`s games can you come up with?
In some ways parties were more elaborate and well planned then, but at the same time a good hostess used what simple resources she had available. She was "frugal" without even realizing it! Here are a selection of suggested games from that year. I think you will find in the 21st century, these can still bring fun and laughter into your home!

Red hearts, good hearts
Hang a number of colored hearts about the room, fastened on walls and furniture. Explain before the game that only red hearts are good ones and that if anyone touches a heart of another color or fails to find a red heart she must drop out of the game. Have a few less red hearts than players and remove 2 or 3 of them at each interval. Players form in a circle and march to music. When the music stops suddenly each players tries to find for herself a red heart and must drop out if she does not succeed.
