    I think that touristy areas in Egypt are very well protected. We felt absolutely safe in Sinai, and only some people travelling to Cairo met some trouble when leaving Sinai.

    "Safe" is a relative term. Last year there were several kidnappings of foreigners in the Sinai region. All foriegners were released unharmed. Of course, there were 60-70 kidnappings a month in Mexico. So as i say, it's all relative.

    I was in Egypt during the Uprise and felt so safe when I was in Mt. Sinai and Dahab..It was in Cairo then where I felt a bit concern but Mt. Sinai & Dahab, other than the usual extra care we take when travellin, you're good to go...have fun!
