Pyramids, riding camels, the Nile, museums, scuba diving in the Red Sea, walking amid buildings older than anything built in the United States, and observing the Muslim culture firsthand: all I can say is wow!

There are 14 casinos in Cairo alone. Amid all the ruins, history, and culture, gaming prevails for those who like to take a chance and like the excitement of winning.
It's amazing to walk amid objects of art and history that are older than any man-made thing in America. There are mummies, coffins, shoes, King Tut, and Ramses. It's overwhelming to be among such ancient treasures.

We drove to the tip if the Sinai Peninsula to stay the weekend at this renowned resort. The president of Egypt vacations there, and so had President Bill Clinton. It is so lush compared to Cairo and the surrounding countryside. The Red Sea was cobalt blue. We parasailed, scuba dived, and just laid on the beach. Shopping is amazing. All the sidewalks were marble at our resort. Flowers everywhere. I met people from Italy and England. It appears to be a favorite of Europeans in October, when their climate has become chilly.
