Mecca vs Marbella or even Margate.

Post by Who2 »

On average 2 million Muslims visit Mecca at this time of the year.
This time of the year on average 2 million UK tourists visit anywhere that's hot.

Mass tourism of 'sun-seeking UK tourists started here in the 1960's.
Mass tourism of Muslims visiting Mecca started about the 1980's.

The sun shines all over this world as do religions.
But there's something here, I cannot quite put my finger on.

No doubt elucidation will descend upon me later today..'inshallah..8)

Ps: Iv'e never felt the need to visit a church regarding my religion and
never felt the need to visit Margate for a suntan.

Another gem from Her Maj’s representative :

#AMAY | No restrictions on travel to Egypt from UK: Ambassador

Britain’s Ambassador to Cairo, Geoffrey Adams, hailed the precautionary measures Egypt has taken to resume tourism and assured there are no restrictions on traveling to Egypt from the UK.

Travelling from Egypt to U.K.....well, that’s another matter! :lol:

Why is the World not asking Egypt how they have so many recovered CV19 infections.
Here's the World's current status.
15729
And here is my list on countries not to visit:

The cities of Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada received more than 26,000 tourists from:
Ukraine, Belarus, Switzerland, Hungary and Serbia.
I find it hard to believe Egyptians are wearing masks and social distancing, but then it's
all, 'God's will.... 8)

Ps: If any idiot has gone on holiday since February they deserve all they get.
isolate the lot, if & when they return to any the 136 UK uninhabited islands...

At a guess.....because the world doesn’t believe for a minute the statistics emanating from Egypt :lol:

For example, it’s still on the “essential travel only” lists of most countries...including U.K.

The Gulf states require returning Egyptian workers to take a COVID-19 test before entering.

As far as Egypt is concerned, the return of tourists is all-important so any “negative” news would be suppressed anyway. It’s all about impressions. They require incoming tourists to declare that they are COVID free....well, they would, wouldn’t they :lol:

They also ask you to confirm you have insurance....in the full knowledge that such insurance as you might have is almost certainly invalidated by your choice of Egypt as a destination!

Cynical or what?

Never mind Mecca it seems that 2 million Christians have invaded the beaches in Bournemouth to worship the sun. This may last for a couple more months provided the holy one allows the sun to shine :D :D :D

No! Not 2 million Christians, but highly likely 2 million Covidiots.

The UK is set for a rise in cases of Covid-19 and skin cancer.

Bournemouth, where I was born...c1949 scorpio rising..
You can't win really can you ? 'they moaned about no business now they moan about too much business.
All those 'must visit cornish type villages roads jam packed with 4x4's and motorhomes.

Hilarious to be honest, I know, Iv'e lived in many of those idilic 'must visit places.
And robbed a few of those day-tripper 'must visit manors...
I blame the telly..'must have, go there, buy this, buy a bleeding chateau...

Anyhow we british love sun, booze, birds, 'those ba*stards can't dictate to us were british..
So, Bournemouth here we come....cough cough..

If I was in Bournemouth these days 'toilets, I would invest in Portaloos, big money don't knock it.
I know a bit about portaloos.... 8)

My old man George senior had about 10 huts we used them as camps plus that ww2 upside down pill-box, till they pushed it over b4 it fell on someone, erosion the hotel fell over eventually.
Sad but 'everything returns to its source of it's arising' ... 8) 'deep & it's only Monday...
Ps: I wonder if the pill box is still there ?

What about Beach huts?

https://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/ ... ish-sting/
I'm very surprised that a Bournmouth beach hut only cost £2,000. I thought they were beyond silly money these days.
