I feel like I've been taken hostage, but in a good way. True, I've been bundled into a car and taken to an unknown destination somewhere in the old city section of Homs. But there are no dank cells or handcuffs here. Instead it's just endless cups of tea and a table groaning under the weight of huge plates of food. This is Syria and, yet again, I've been befriended by a local family and brought home for lunch. This is a nation that takes hospitality very seriously.

I am slowly going deaf. There is a tell-tale ringing in my ears and a new-found tendency to shout: definite symptoms of graduating from tourist to local. Most foreigners last only a few days in the Egyptian capital, and leave with nerves rubbed raw by the never-ending noise. I have been in Cairo long enough to develop hearing loss. This city is adopting me.

A fatal attraction: that is one dimension of the Blue Hole, a 100m-deep underwater pothole just off the shore of the Sinai Peninsula. This fissure has claimed many divers' lives, as becomes clear as you approach it; small shrines and memorials to lost loved ones line the route to the sea. But despite its notoriety, for the snorkeller who intends to descend only a few metres it is (weather-permitting) a relatively tame swim that gives you an amazing insight into what can exist just below the surface of the water.
