SPOT no more

On our trip to Hurghada, I had the SPOT GPS tracker hanging from the curtain in the van so we could track our trip through the desert. Upon arrival in Hurghada it was clear that our driver didn't know where our Hotel was despite telling us he did when we set out. We have seen this scenario many times on the Amazing Race show.

After inquiring from a number of people, we began to believe our driver couldn't even follow directions. Taking a page from the Amazing Race, we hired a local taxi to lead the way to the hotel so our driver could follow. This was despite our driver not wanting to do this, thinking it was some kind of affront. After being quickly let to the hotel, we excitedly climbed out of the van and I left the SPOT behind. I am trying to see if I can recover it, but have limited hopes.

I will see if i can replace it, but until then, it is just registering the ramblings of a tour bus in Luxor!
