'Hours Just Floating in Peace': Video Captures Man's Serene Moment at Egyptian Saltwater Pool

Stunning footage shows a US tourist floating serenely in a saltwater pool in Egypt’s Siwa Oasis.

Kene Nwobu, from Texas, said he “spent hours just floating in peace,” after travelling for 10 hours by bus to reach the oasis in the Western Desert on November 23.

“The Siwa salt lakes are beautiful and serve some of the most amazing blue water you will ever see,” he said in an Instagram post, describing how he could “instantly float” on the water.
