Last month I went to El Bahareia Oasis, where I realized that the desert can sometime be prettier and more interesting than beaches and green valleys.
The houses in the oasis - El Bawiti village - are simple yet beautiful and the streets are narrow yet friendly.
People there are friendly and wherever we go, they offer us Tea and Dates.
There are many hot springs there, where villagers like to swim and take baths.
We then went to a mountain called the "English Mountain", because the English army used to stay there during the World War II.
Then in the next day we went to the "Black Desert"
Which is called so because mountains there are made of volcanic rocks called Basalt which are black.
We then passed by the "Chrystal Mountain"
The Aqabat (Agabat)
And finally reached the "White Desert" to camp there
