These are desperate times in Egypt. We all know that tourism, the life-blood of modern Egypt, has fallen off some 95 to 98% during the continuing unrest of the past four years. Egypt went from Mubarak (a dictator), to a weak coalition government (a form of democracy), to an Islamic majority (another dictatorship), to a military coup. American tourists, who are considred "rich" by much of the world, are staying away in droves. Well, who can blame them? At least BBC is no longer broadcasting images of unemployed Egyptian males burning Americans in effigy and trampling the Stars and Stripes. Like I would EVER spend an American penny in your country, dudes? Ha!
I think this is bullshit - but, we'll see...
