Sunday 0830 shove off to sketch at near by Jaffa. Lose two hours trying to find Petrol Point that finally turns up 25 miles from town on road to Beersheba. This very trying as we haven't time to go back, as I have promised to return the jeep in eight days and have planned to sketch in Port Said, which of course is much more important. Head for Gaza through Er Ram El Majdal. On outskirts of Beersheba, find many camels kneeling and donkeys tethered for the market day.
Enter Ismailia. Every place filled.
