Borg El Burullus town, Kafr El Sheikh Governorate

A house entrance...Really Artistic!

This artistic street lies directly on the Mediterranean Sea in “Borg El Burullus town”, Kafr El Sheikh governorate, Egypt. It’s more like an open art gallery, where lovely drawings and paintings are made on buildings walls & doors along the street. Simple yet Beautiful Smile Children there are very friendly; as soon as they notice a camera in your hand, they run to you and ask you to take them a photo Big Grin in a wink, they gather, stand in the photo position, and smile Heart

Lovely kids of Burullus <3

The opening of an Egyptian song, meaning "Why does the sea laugh?" :D

“Ras Muhammed”, Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt

Ras Muhammed Natural Reserve / Protectorate in Sharm El Sheikh, South Sinai, is one of the 24 natural reserves / protectorates in Egypt. The marine life there, presented in corals and fish is Amazing. The snorkeling and diving there are just mind blowing experiences! Below water is another coloured world full of coral reefs and fish with different species, sizes and colours… fish shapes are sometimes exotic.

Not only underwater is beautiful, but also above… The “Mangrove Trees” area in Ras Muhammed protectorate Charming! Those Mangrove trees that grow in salty sea waters not only give a picturesque natural scene, but also work as salt filter, since they contain a natural salt filtration system within the tree parts, so you can find salt particles accumulated on Mangrove leaves.

Inside the protectorate, there is also the “Magic Lake” where water is so clear to the extent of being transparent. The water of the shallow parts of the lake, adjacent to the lake shore has no colour (literally transparent) then the deeper parts of the lake start getting light blue shades. Regarding the reason of calling he lake “magic”, there are 2 says; the first say is that since – for an unknown reason - it didn’t appear on satellite photos of Ras Muhammed protectorate till few years ago. The second say is that because the water colour in the lake changes many times per day, due to sun light reflection on it.

Don’t miss the “Earthquake Crack” in Ras Muhammed protectorate too. This crack age is thousand of years, however the cracked surface was closed until 1969 when an earthquake happened, affected the surface and broke it; 42 meters long, 1.2 meters wide & 14 meters deep. The crack hosts “blind red shrimps” and specific algae. It’s not allowed to get down inside the crack.

All types of fishing or hunting are not allowed in the protectorate.
