    In the days I was there it was so off the
    beaten track that no other tourists came
    or were allowed officially here,
    but keeping track of people in a terrain
    of deserts and mountains not being to easy.

    Well I walked from Al Tur down the beach and
    up towards Hammam Moussa, followed by hoards
    of beduin kids. Al Tur is the center for oil exploration
    in the area and thee were some ex-pats and some
    other charachters who might have been American
    spooks or 'consultants'...I avoided contact as much
    as possible being in a place where tourists weren't
    officially allowed.
    Hammam Moussa was up off the beach and looked pretty run down,
    surrounded by palm trees in this beautiful desert location,
    it could be a typical oasis setting. Since my visit 30 years
    ago I heard they have really flashed up the place and
    there is a new hotel run by a Brit and a wind surfing
    centre too. The Hammam Moussa has been renovated and
    has recently been developed into an intricate complex
    of pools and gardens with changing rooms and restaurants.

    It was the sunny day of 22-1-2014 when we passed by El Tur city to watch the Moses pool , it is consists of 5 springs it brings warm water (37 degrees Celsius ) and has a big healing powers due to what it carries of Minerals (sulphur water) such as rheumatism and skin diseases, bone diseases , inside the bathroom of Moses and when viewed from the inside you'll find that the water rushes strongly from the ground, and the water is not drinkable , because it has a low sulphur element . upon entering the dome you will see water as the following picture is inside this dome , used for the women to swim and heal their bodies , the place is very quiet it is full of palms which said to be back in the history till the days or Prophet Moses , the guy who is taking care of the palms their told us that when a palm starts to Die it send one of its leaves down to the earth where it digs in the land and start a new palm ( same like Banana Tree )

    Al Tur is a very quiet city where you have the chance to feel the beauty of the place and the people , i had that chance and took good time enjoying the city out of crowd and noise from where i live and work , you can see harmony between people buildings and mountains around the city
