This is my 5th trip to Egypt and it hasn't changed one bit. If one didn't know that something big happened here (politically) on January 25, 2011, they couldn't guess it. Virtually everything seems the same - the traffic is horrendous, there are 25 million people in this relatively small space and the Egyptians remain friendly and out going towards tourists. Well, at least the Egyptians who work in tourism because that industry here has plunged 95% since the Arab Spring. They are hurting and just love to see that our group is here.
The last time I visited the Sphinx it was literally wall to wall people! Today, we were the only group there! What a difference this makes.
This trip is completely action packed and there is not enough time to do this blog justice. Look at the pictures and know that I wish I could write more about what we are seeing. Hopefully more geology to come in Rwanda with active volcano's and gorilla's living on their slopes.
