Red sea shark

The Sharm el Shark attacks have been the big news of the week, the last one being fatal. It's tragic but very rare for shark attacks especially in the Gulf of Aqaba, you're much more likely to be injured on your taxi transfer from the airport. Swimtrek don't have another trip to Dahab until the beginning of February, if I was offered another trip I'd say yes right away.
This was going to be a visual blog but my camera is being fixed and the weather has been so cold I haven't even ben up to the Lido. Work is crazily busy and there have been a few parties to recover from. Two visits to the Queen Mother sports centre was pretty good going, 100 lengths a visit is only five km total but I'm getting back into a better pool rhythm and enjoying it a bit more. I miss the gossip and sauna of Tooting.

  2. Alex - you should come down the lido - even if just once a week for the sheer exhilaration of a 1 degree dip. The sauna'll warm you back up in no time.

  3. Everytime I think of going up to the lido the weather turns icy again.
