Red Sea Seating

The day was coming to a close on the Red Sea.  Red carpets were laid out on the Corniche and some Bedouin style floor cushion seating was placed around the edge of the carpets.  I'm not really sure if this was for a special occasion or if it's a normal sight, but I thought it was very cool.

Hi Yogi - A lot of families will bring a big carpet to sit on, but this was quite a surprise.

Hi Gaelyn - The red carpets are definitely a Bedouin influence.
