From the roof-top of the Camel Bar in Naama Bay, Egypt, you can see the lights of the bizzarre.  Our platoon has duties that keep it on Camp for a time, and we are able to spend our free time out of the confines of the chicken wire. There is always a taxi around when you need a little R&R in town.  There is a Hard Rock Cafe, a TGI-Fridays, KFC, Baskin Robbins, and Pizza Hut.  If you are craving a Big Mac, there is a McD's right nearby too.  Most of the fast food can also be delivered to camp pretty quickly.  The Camel Bar is a great little club that caters to the British Ex-Pat Community.  The roof deck has a bar and picnic tables and among the items to eat and drink, the nachos reign supreme.  You can also order a bit of the SHISHA to smoke if you like flavored tobacco, and the help brings you a 2-3 foot tall water pipe to smoke it with.  Very cool if you like that sort of thing.  I do not partake, but the fruit tobacco has a very nice odor that wafts around the room.  There are also couches and coffee tables to enjoy a beverage and a smoke for a more relaxed time.  Many of the local Europeans on HOLIDAY hang out here, and the single soldiers always have someone to chat with that is a lot more pleasing to the eye than the mongrels in their platoon back on base.  PS.  Finally got the computer running to peak performance and I will be posting more regularly from now one......
