Subject: Re: Egypt
Greetings to new members & a question for Horsellman & any other Egypt travelers,

You mentioned that you & your wife have traveled the deserts of several countries including Egypt. I'm leaving Jan. 20 for a trip to Egypt starting in Cairo with tour to Giza, then overnight train to Aswan, plane trip to Abu Simbel, Nile cruise with stops at Edfu & Kom-Ombo, Valley of Kings, El Deir El Bahari, Colossi of Memnon, Luxor, Karnak Temple. Our last 3 days will be spent in Hurghada & that's my main question.
>From what I've read, Hurghada is overbuilt & very touristy. My niece & I don't dive & are wondering if there are other interesting activities in the resort? Also, in general, any places we shouldn't miss or special places to seek out, restaurants, any other travel tips?

Thanks for any great ideas & welcome to the group.
