I looked up the conversion for US dollars to Egyptian pounds and $100 us dollars equals about 553 egyptian pounds. Is that the correct currency for Egypt? Can anyone give me an idea of what meals, cabs, etc cost in Egypt? Should I convert money prior to going to Egypt or just use my ATM and get the money out when I get there?

Yes, Egypt uses pounds and that is the correct conversion rate for today. I haven't been to Egypt in almost 30 years, but being a third world country for the most part it is generally much cheaper to eat and get around. Just be careful where you eat. I came down with a ghastly case of the Pharoah's revenge that took a week to get over.

I was just reading last night about being careful about the food and water. I think I'll pack some crackers and water in my backpack
