I was watching a program the other day showing the terrible situation in Egypt I know when I was there in April the people were desperate. Half the Nile Cruise boats were running and there were virtually no American tourists.


The program showed how horses, camels had starved to death as their owners could not afford to feed them. Without tourists the people and their livelihood are suffering.


The sites next to the Pyramids, Sphinx and other areas are being illegally dug up and treasures stolen. This lady in the program was trying to sue the Minister of Antiquities for not doing his job and stopping these people destroying and stealing historical items.


I really want to go back to Egypt to see the rest of the wonders I missed. We met so many amazing people there. I really hope I get that opportunity to go back when things have settled and it's safer to return.

Ironic thing is the country was stable with a dictator but doing so allowed the country to be looted of its large gold deposits and the storage of chemicals other countries didnt want and now they have to live with that. Revolution has a big toll on its people expecially these era of revolutions due to are dependancy on electricity and food being bought in stores. I have many friends in egytpt and from there alot that are news was saying about the muslims killing christains and vice versa was blow out of porportion. Be careful what sources you use.
