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...
