Hola Gabriel, qué gusto leerte después de tanto tiempo!
Muchas gracias, repartiré los abrazos entre mis dos hijos! ;-) (ha sido realmente mucho tiempo!)
O.K. Ali. I did not need any special permission at the time to visit beautiful El Arish. I hope it is still as beautiful as it was then.
A bit of History of El Arish:
Theodor Herzl, the founder of Zionism, proposed Cyprus or Arish as a Jewish homeland since neither the Sultan nor the Kaiser supported settlement in Palestine. In 1903, Joseph Chamberlain, the British colonial secretary, agreed to consider Arish, and Herzl commissioned the lawyer David Lloyd George a charter draft, but his application was turned down once an expedition, led by Leopold Kessler had returned and submitted a detailed report to Herzl, which outlined a proposal to divert some of the Nile waters to the area for the purpose of settlement.
On December 8, 1958, an air battle occurred between Egyptian and Israeli air forces over Arish.
Arish was under military occupation by Israel from 1967 to 1979 and briefly in 1956. It was returned to Egypt in 1979 after the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty. -From Wikipedia
