20101204 – St Katrina, Sinai, Egypt –
Bedouins from the Jabaleya tribe have a monopoly on servicing the tourists of Mt. Sinai. They baragin hard for the camels but more often that not are extremely hospitable and always offer a friendly hand.
Mount Sinai also known as Mount Horeb, Mount Musa, Jabal Musa is the name of a mountain in Saint Katherine city, in the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt. The summit of the mountain has a mosque which is still prayed in by Muslims until today, and a Greek Orthodox chapel which is not open to the public. The chapel supposedly encloses the rock from which God made the Tablets of the Law. Today, Sinai has become a tourist destination due to its natural setting, rich coral reefs, and biblical history.
