      Hurghada and Mosquitoes

      Egypt Jan 31, 2016 at 7:55 AM

      Hi, off to Hurghada in March - just wondering if mosquitoes are generally a problem in the resort areas (I've been to Alexandria/Cairo/Karnak and up the Nile, and they were there).  Will be taking repellant anyway but my son is a magnet for them so trying to find out in advance what we'll be up against!!  Thanks.

      VIsa Requirements

      Egypt Yesterday

      I will be travelling to Egypt next month and need to know the correct visa requirements as I hear 2 different things: I can get one when I arrive at Cairo airport and then I hear that I have to get one prior to arriving. I've contacted the Egytian Embassies in NY and DC by phone and email to which I've not yet received a response. This is utterly confusing as it seems there's nothing clear about it. The EgyptAir website states I can get one when I arrive but I want to be sure and I'd hate to be told otherwise when I arrive. I really don't trust mailing my passport to the embassy because if they can't even respond to my calls/emails, then what makes you think they'll send me back my passport and visa in time. PLEASE HELP!

      I'm looking for a carving inside the Egyptian Museum of Antiques

      Egypt Yesterday

      In the Egyptian Museum, I seen a carving of a woman sitting on a chair holding a book with 4 men sitting cross legged on the floor in front of her. Their heads were pointed up with bubbles and/or stars around their heads indicating they were dazed or hypnotized somehow. How can I get a picture of this carving?

      Is Cairo a safe place to visit 2016

      Cairo Feb 1, 2016 at 11:05 AM

      We are going to Cairo in a few days and I just realized now that it is the fifth year anniversary of Arab-spring and I have read there may be a lot of demonstrations and perhaps some violence. I wonder, is it safe?
