Hi Nancy, I am heading to Yosemite right now, well, stopped off at my girlfriend's KOA in Terra Haute, Ind.   I was pleased to find  that the cabin had wifi, and a tv, but there are no sheets or blankets on the bed!!!!!! My sleeping bag is packed in the very back of my trunk, and it's dark out there now!  Oh well, such is the life of a wanderer!  Glad to have you as a coolworks friend.  Cathy

Dear Nancy,

To know more about Cairo and many surrounding towns please visit my other website

where you find many tours which cover all the famous sights in and around Cairo. I'm sure you will like it. You are right, tourism has been affected a little bit by what's happening in Egypt. I would like to reasuure you that every body is very happy to pay such a  price to live in a democratic country. It's well worth it.
