We did it!

That's right. The event you have all been waiting for...


We had been repeatedly warned. As harrasment goes, Egypt's reputation is high on the list. Single western women especially may expect to be the target of agressive, unwanted attention. Much advice circulates around how to avoid such advances, the top two of which are to dress conservatively and wear a wedding ring. So, consider me scarved and banded.

Another tip Lonely Planet offers is to learn a few discouraging Arabic phrases. My favorite, which I plan to use often: Ihtirim nafsak. "Behave yourself!"
