Egypt, Then and Now...

What a difference a few months makes...

My selfish thought, one that's been repeated by our family members, is that it's a good thing that we visited when we did.  Even back then, we traveled in a bus convoy that was escorted by armed security guards.  It just makes me sad that Egypt may become unaccessible to the outside world - it's truly one of those places that everyone needs to visit at least once in their lives.
