Egypt Blue Desert







The Blue Desert is s site situated between Dahab and the Saint Catherine monastery in Sinai, Egypt and can be seen in just one day. This place has a nice story: a Belgian artist called Jean Berame came here in 1980 to paint a peace line. The artist used 10 tons of blue paint given by the UN and painted about 4 miles in one year. And as this area of Sinai became bleu, it was called the Bleu Desert. This real work of art implied the painting of some huge brown rocks and it was made with the Anwar Sadat's permission; the Sinai’s landscape was used by Berame as a honor brought to the peace between Egypt and Israel. The Sinai’s sky is famous for its incredible blue, the color of peace and that's why the artist chosen it. Some of the rocks painted by him are more than 30 feet high and can be considered a monument of peace. These rocks may look like some enormous balloons or like huge gobs from chewing gum. The painted rocks are an important attraction but the wadi itself is the most fascinating thing over here. The desert’s floor is covered with golden stones and huge sculptures from granite and the plains are dotted with wonderful flowers of pink color. There is also a lovely contrast between the stones and the desert’s colors: yellow, brown and red with their shades. If you plan a trip to the Blue Desert you should know that it is a good place for those who want to camp and the perfect place for relaxing, for taking beautiful pictures and for climbing. You can take a guide with you to be sure that you will not miss a thing.
