I've never been, but my daughter's fiance is leaving in January to go there for a year. He's being deployed, so it definitely won't be a vacation or huge sightseeing journey.

I'd also love to hear more about it, since it will be very close to my daughter's and my own heart. Smile

Not me, but my mom went in the 80s, with her friends. Best vacation in her life, she says.

Hello Nadi....

I have been to Egypt a couple of times. I have family there.
They mainly live in Alexandria. I have seen the Pyramids, Sphinx,
The Nile, Luxor, Aswan and The Red Sea. It is a BEAUTIFUL country.
I have thought about living there, but my life is here in New York.

I lived in Egypt for three years. My feeling of the place is mixed. There are fantastic sites to see. There are also crazy religious nuts. If you go for a visit as a tourist you are likely to enjoy the sites. Go in winter when it is significantly cooler if possible. If you plan to live there, you can be quite comfortable as well. You will enocunter a different sets of ftrustrations than you do where you are, but by and large most people can deal with them.

Well, I went there and absolutely hated it!

Bribery and corruption seem rife. I couldn't even get a seat on a Singapore Airlines flight out without bribing the girl in the SA office. I mean, really!!!

The men all seem to have some weird disease that requires them to play with their balls all the time. And they walk into you in the street. They seem to think that white females, alone, are fair game. I'm middle aged, overweight, not blonde, and was covered from head to toe, but still got jostled and propositioned, groped, etc., all the time. I ended up spending a great deal of time in the hotel. Even the hotel limousine, taking me to the airport, was driven by some sleazebag, who wanted to stop for a quick shag on the way to the airport. Apologies to the Egyptians who have posted here, but your countrymen, to me, were just intolerable!

And what sort of country is it when you can't use that country's currency at the airport - the shops only took US dollars.

I saw the main features of Cairo and surrounds, but didn't get to Luxor.

I'm glad I've seen it, but would never, ever go back.

there is a limit to the warmth to every smile
People there don't welcome foreigners there, as the majority of them are conservative. i mean by foreigners people who have a compleletly western social attitude sex as complete openness towards sexual practices and semi-nudity. I advice you if you are a person who cannot live without such lifestyle, you must try to find alternatives and vice versa.

aaanuk - welcome to A2k - but your response to me was inappropriate.

I'm as conservative as the next person (well, not entirely), and the people I had dealings there were, for the most part, simply grossly offensive. I guess that's one way of not making me welcome.

Thank you, but....
I expected absolutely nothing from Egyptian men. I wanted nothing from them. I was there briefly as a tourist - just to have a look around.

It was the men who were so offensive. They would go out of their way to jostle me, walk into me, touch me! Or play with themselves.

Nowhere, apart from my hotel, did I find people as you described

country ending to its people who r kind ,friendly &helpful.in egypt u r safe anywhere and at any time ,the weather is great ,the people r nice too and if u met any corruption that is because of u ..

I'm an overweight, conservative, middle aged lady. I dressed extremely modestly - covered from head to toe. And I still experienced problems. This, to me, indicates that there is an attitude problem towards women in that society.

The suggestion that I caused corruption is extremely bloody offensive!

Your comment about my country lacking history is also quite rude. This country may lack what Europeans see as their version of history - but this is the oldest geological continent in the world - and the aborigines have had a civilisation here for about 40,000 years. It depends on how narrow minded is your vision of "history".

I also would love to see ancient Egypt, however the same thing happened with my friend she and her husband went to Egypt they had a blast of a time, but however she was also groped in the streets and pinched on the butt in front of her husband!...go figure!
A group tour would probably be the way I would do it.

That was you, Margo!? Holy crap! I was the guy who jostled you. Remember? I wore a pith helmet and had a rather lecherous look on my face. You approached me, I glanced around, no one appeared to be looking, so I jostled you.

Just one little jostle, but the look in your eyes was almost demonic. I fled....off to jostle more cooperative tourists.

I think I should visit Egypt. Don't they worship cats there? It's about time I got some respect....

Just be sure you don't misspell that and wind up asking for a "grope" tour!
