  1. These are excellent accounts & ought to receive wider publicity, if only to show that not all Egyptians have their hands out for baksheesh!

    I have an excellent account of an overnight felucca trip by an American journalist … he was told this wasn’t normally allowed, because there is no toilet facility aboard a felucca. But:

  2. Hi Keith
    Thanks for posting a comment. It’s such a shame that most travellers’ experience of Egypt is gained from the main tourists areas – Luxor, Giza, Aswan etc where the hassle has worsened over the years. The hassle is from people who make a living out of tourists – and who can blame them! But the majority of Egyptians are genuine, friendly and caring people. My opinion of this hasn’t changed in twelve years.

    I have also found your last statement to be so true. Love it! After my first tentetive steps at trying to get where I wanted to go, I usually find there is a way….

    ‘This is Egypt! All things are illegal, but nothing’s impossible’.
