It sounds like a great opportunity to experience one of earth's oldest countries. People were very friendly and the food was delicious.
I've been there a couple of times but only scuba diving
The Red sea is truly magnificent. "Hallah's acquarium"!
Never made it to Cairo but I'm sure it's beautiful.
I had a great time there but now there are a few tensions, mainly in the resort areas frequented by tourists. Cities are ok. I believe it's safe enough to go. I would. Taking the AS? Post pics!!
