Now it's commercialized a bit, but why not? Omran, the owner, has become one of my best friends in Siwa over the years and he, like others, has a family to feed. In the old days there was no paved road/bus parking and I caught a ride with Omran and his father on their donkey cart. His father played music in the British Army in WWII, and remembered some of the tunes which he would humm for me. Magic!
My secret....Go skinny dipping at 2AM in the morning with your girlfriend/wife, when nobody is around to bother you. It's a long walk in the dark, but worth it.
Omran has many brothers and maybe he can arrange for a special family visit during Eid, or a trip to the salt quarry where they harvest salt, or you can film him making a 'gumar'.
