Oct 12 - Sailing to Egypt

A beautifully warm and calm day at sea - it seems a world away from the cold and drizzle we left behind in London.

As this is the only sea day for the next week, workaholic Jon gave 2 more lectures today - Egypt in the morning and Israel in the evening. Both were well attended, and even though Jon inevitably had to talk about the thorny subjects of religion and politics in his Israel lecture, he seems to have negotiated that potential minefield safely.

A long day tomorrow on the 2 and a half hour trip to Cairo from Alexandria.
