Safety in Egypt
My husband and I are planning a trip to Egypt in October. We have been reading post on frommers and trip advisor. We realize that the media gets the most bang for the buck to write about interest stories. But we are wandering just how safe it is. We have already booked and paid for our trip. Our tour guide says its safe, but we know Egypt is hurting for tourist. Has anyone been there lately. Is it as bad as what we see on TV and hear on the radio? I was downtown seattle during the WTO demonstrations (just because I worked there) and if you didn't go into the specific area, you were safe. Can anyone give us any information?
