As previously independant travellers we've been seduced by a bargain flight/b&b at a resort hotel at the end of July. If the boys (15 & 13) want to escape the compound and take a bus into Dahab to find some lads for a kickabout, is there a piece of open ground where the sporty locals tend to hang out? Alternatively are there local housing areas within walking distance of the gates of the Hilton? Assuming they need to carry ID, I take it that a photocopy of their passport and a contact number of the hotel sufficient? Are there public phones on the streets if they have a problem and if so what change do they need to carry to use them? The boys only have a word or two of Arabic, but do they teach either English or French in schools here? Apologies for the jumbled myriad of queries and thanks in advance for any help you can give.
