The next day we drove west and then north up the Gulf of Suez before turning inland - we had read of a Saracen Castle (still largely intact according to the Guide Book). We missed it the first time, and had to turn back but eventually saw it perched on top of a hill. Jeremy and I climbed up to see it - it was absolutely derelict but the views from the top across Sinai were stunning.

We camped on the road to Suez - this time without visitors - and had a wonderful night - sitting after dinner looking at the amazing starlit sky.
