17 people, 70 rubbish bags and 7 hours to remove more than 700 kilos of rubbish

Dahabs Canyon and Blue Hole

News
 
Clean up

Every Dahab diver knows the Canyon and Blue Hole. They also know the bumpy stretch of road that separates the 2 dives sites - impossible for anything but the toughest 4x4s... and also impossible for the rubbish truck! So this year, for Project Awares International Clean-up Day, we held the Big Blue Hole Clean Up!

The day started at 8 with coffee at the club, then we packed everyone into the jeeps & pick-ups for the drive to the Canyon. Half the crew started at the Canyon dive site, the other half at the Blue Hole, and many hours later they finally met in the middle!

A very big thank you to everyone who helped us, and especially to Octopus Restaurant at the Blue Hole who hosted our free lunch & kept us going!

Tanis, Said & the Desert Divers Team

Foul with Tehina

This is such a delicious recipe. Foul is usually eaten with tehina salad on the side, but here it is already cooked with it.

Ramadan Recipe
 
Foul
Foul

Cuisine: Egyptian
Main ingredients: Black beans, Tehina, Garlic
Time of preparation: 5 Minutes
Time of cooking: 5 minutes
Serving: 4

Ingredients:

3 Cups Black Beans, or 2 cans Americana beans
4 Tbsp Corn Oil Crystal, or olive oil
6 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp Tehina
4-5 Branches Parsley, chopped
2 Carrots, peeled
1-2 Tsp Cumin
1 Green Chili Pepper, cut into very small pieces or chili powder
Salt and Pepper

Directions:

1. In a medium saucepan, heat beans over medium heat. Add tehina, garlic and chili pepper.
2. Add season beans with cumin, salt and pepper. Add little water.
3. Take off heat and add lemon juice. Taste to adjust seasoning.
4. Move to a serving bowl. Add oil and garnish with parsley on the surface


Tip: Blend beans in a blender then strain or strain beans through a tomato strainer to mash and get rid of beans crusts. Strained beans are easier to digest and more tasty. Do that before cooking beans and continue with the rest of the steps as stated.

Egypt: How bazaar

When visiting Egypt, there are ten things you absolutely must do.

Feature Article
Valley of the Kings

Valley of the Kings

Continued from last weeks issue. click here to read no 7 of "When visiting Egypt, there are ten things you absolutely must do."

8. Go to the Valley of the Kings
Riding a donkey, the main mode of transport for many Egyptians in the less urban areas, is a lot more comfortable than you might anticipate. From Luxors West Bank, trot along streams and native villages and into the vast, barren canyon that houses around 62 well-maintained, hieroglyph-covered tombs, where pharaohs and other folk began their journeys into the afterlife.

If you are not keen on donkeys, you might fancy a hot air balloon instead - and a birds-eye, sunrise view of the Valley of the Kings is something you will never forget.

No. 9 on the list of things you absolutely must do in Egypt will follow next week.

Red Sea Diving sites
North Naama Bay
Red Sea diving sites
 
Naama Bay
Naama Bay

Naama Bay is a resort; nonetheless, there are many diving spots in this area both to the North and South. In North Naama Bay, there are eight diving spots, Ras Ghamila, Ras Nasrani, Ras Bob, White Knight, Shark Bay, Far Garden, Middle Garden, and Near Garden.

Ras Ghamila: Diving in this spot is easy and pleasant. It is also a good place for night dive.

Sharks Bay: Unlike its name, sharks are not often found in this area. Most probably it was called the Sharks Bay because fishermen used to unload the sharks they caught on this bay. It is easily reached by land. Sharks Bay has a lovely beach which is crowded most of time. It is a good diving spot for beginners and allows a very good night dive.

Middle Garden: As its name implies is located between Far Garden and Near Garden. It is characterized with easy diving and it is a very good spot for beginners and inexperienced divers.

White Knight: a small bay that has mooring point; and so is well sheltered from the waves and wind.

Tutankhamun was not black
News
Tutankhamun

Tutankhamun

Egyptian antiquities supremo Zahi Hawass insisted Tuesday that Tutankhamun was not black despite calls by US black activists to recognise the boy kings dark skin colour.

"Tutankhamun was not black, and the portrayal of ancient Egyptian civilisation as black has no element of truth to it," Hawass told reporters.

"Egyptians are not Arabs and are not Africans despite the fact that Egypt is in Africa," he said, quoted by the official MENA news agency.

Hawass said he was responding to several demonstrations in Philadelphia after a lecture he gave there on September 6 where he defended his theory.

Protestors also claimed images of King Tut were altered to show him with lighter skin at the "Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs" exhibit which leaves Philadelphia for London on September 30.

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds

Subtly sweet and nutty with a malleable, chewy texture, the roasted seeds from inside your Halloween pumpkin are one of the most nutritious and flavorful seeds around. While pumpkin seeds are available year round, they are the freshest in the fall when pumpkins are in season.

Pumpkin seeds, also known as pepitas, are flat, dark green seeds. Some are encased in a yellow-white husk, although some varieties of pumpkins produce seeds without shells. Like cantaloupe, cucumber, and squash, pumpkins and pumpkin seeds belong to the gourd or Cucurbitaceae family.

Health Benefits
