Abdallah and his Magic Peugeot


Abdallah the Plumber and his Peugeot

Abdallah's the best plumber in Dahab and he has a car I would like to own one day. In fact I've begged him many a time to either give or sell it to me.

It's a beaten up gold Peugeot which has a kind of magic to it. The lack of power steering was enough to tone up my bingo wings the few times I've driven it from Asala to Mashraba.

Abdallah's rarely seen without a smile on his face and he seems to be able to achieve the impossible, by speaking to me in a fast mix of Arabic and English which I can somehow decipher every time. To be honest he'd be as good an Arabic teacher as a Plumber if he set his mind to it.
