August 11, 2001 – Aqaba




I wake up in good shape, with no remains of this night problems: It is the desert effect!!


With Aurelien, we want to take the day tour from the hotel on a boat to dive on 5 different spots but whereas the departure was set at 10am, a guy came and told us that the Dutch group we were supposed to join, doesn’t want us anymore. Thanks!!


We decide to reach the Royal Diving Center in the south from downtown (15 to 20 km) just near the Saudi Arabia border. The entrance costs 3.5 JD but you have access to: toilets, changing rooms, a great beach and a huge swimming pool full of sea water. From the center, you have a direct access to the coral barrier by using a pier. I rent the whole equipment for snorkeling (3 JD). We meet Tobias, a German guy, who studied one year in Toulouse. Time goes by so quickly that it is 5pm and the bell is warning us that the center will close. We come back in town in an Irish car.


Tonight whereas Aurelien and Lydia have a private meeting! Tobias and I are going to eat a burger to change from our daily meals.


We end taking a tea on the beach where all the Jordan swimming and drinking at night. Finally it is the good time because you don’t suffer from the heat and the sun. Finally we drink a fruit cocktail. Aufwiedersehen !
