wow, Egypt is just wow!


My sister and I had a wonderful week in Dahab (Sinai coast) and Cairo- the weather was great, the scenery unbelievable, and the food delicious.  It was astonishing how few tourists we saw; our guides in various places all said that numbers were down about 80% since the revolution which is astonishing.  We felt safe everywhere we went and were certainly well received by the Egyptians we met along the way.  I'll definitely return- partly to see Luxor and Aswan, and partly to sit again on the beach in Dahab in a pod listening to the waves lap gently against the shore...


More pictures are posted on the photos page if you want to see the highlights of the trip.

Is that chaise set up for a massage? I could do that! I'm glad you had a great time--and it's kind of neat you had the place all to your selves!

I fell in love with Cairo too. So glad you had the opportunity to go and explore its history a bit. It is such a fascinating place.
