Truquera, Thanks for the nice comment. My wife said to tell you to "send money." Next week we are off on a 48 day cruise so we need every dollar (or Euro). We absolutely agree with your comments about Egypt. About 5 years ago we spend 2 weeks in Egypt and traveled extensively throughout the country. The only place we disliked was Alexandria (spent 2 nights there). Cairo is a fascinating city and an awful lot of fun. The other parts of Egypt we really loved were Luxor (Valley of the Kings and Queens) and the 5 day cruise we took on the Nile (between Aswan and Luxor). Perhaps someday you will have an opportunity to spend some time in Egypt on a land trip.
