    hi im tom from canada. ill be in cairo from the 14-22 and was thinking of goin on tour wit u guys as well. im a little unsure about egypts political unstability…israel just attacked gaza last week and gaza is not far from cairo, what do u guys think?

    Cairo’s issues was mostly unrelated to israel and was about ousting a dictatorship. The battles were mainly protestors vs police and did not really involve tourists.

    I guess the choice is up to the individual, but the history and adventure in Egypt is probably worth making the journey for.
