I am so touched by the events in Cairo and how the people prevailed and peacefully. They taught the world a lesson, and for those who already knew that lesson, they issued a strong reminder. Today was a transfixing moment, and we should all be so proud of Egypt and her citizens.
Tourism is 10% of the GNP in Egypt, and few tourists have landed there in the last few weeks due to the uncertainty of what would eventually happen. Early spring is a great time for tourism. You can see thousands of years of history and you can feel the good vibes from the past two weeks.
