To all I will get the notes out to you tomorrow. Please pardon the following in "all caps", but I need to get the attention of new readers.

I WILL NOT BE ACCESSING FODORS FOR THE NEXT 7 WEEKS. IF YOU WANT A COPY OF MY NOTES, PLEASE GO TO THE FOLLOWING ADDRESS (Just haven't had time to get them on a Web Page.)

GO TO www.hotmail.com

IN THE SIGN-IN BOX TYPE: alicesnotes

IN THE PASSWORD BOX TYPE: egyptnotes

THIS WILL GIVE YOU ACCESS TO CLICK ON THE E-MAIL IN THE IN-BOX AND THEN YOU CAN PRINT THEM OFF. I HAVE HAD A LOT OF FUN KEEPING TRACK OF THE NUMBER OF NOTES I HAVE SENT OUT (TO DATE 520!!!), SO WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF YOU WOULD LEAVE ME A NOTE ON THIS POSTING THAT YOU DID GET MY NOTES.

NOW, I AM GOING TO REPEAT THIS A FEW MORE TIMES BELOW SO THAT EVERYONE GETS THE MESSAGE. IF YOU EMAIL ME AT HOME, I WON'T GET THEM AND MY DAD "DOESN'T KNOW BEANS" ABOUT USING A COMPUTER, SO HE WON'T BE ABLE TO FORWARD THE NOTES.

HAPPY TRAVELS AND I SURE HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU.... ALICE

Alice,

I'm goint to Egypt in 06/02 with my wife and 2 kids (8 & 10).
How would you plan it with kids (7 to 10 days with Nile cruise)?

I read your notes and they'll be a big help.

Thanks,

Vince

My husband and I are going to Egypt for our 40th anniversary in Feb 1002. We will be going to Kenya first, and then we fly to Cairo. I would love to have copies of your notes and journal. Thank you very much.

Dear Alice, I had a group ready to go with Trafalgar last November but with the unrest in the Mid-east, we cancelled. Am now looking for a major cruise line that will include Cairo overnight. Would like to do Luxor also. Would appreciate your notes. Thank you.

Alice,

You seem to be THE person with info. My sister and I are going to Egypt on September 13 (next week!!). We booked a tour with Cloud tours and are staying at the Ramses Hilton. We are going on a Nile Cruise on the Lady Diana. Your notes and any knowledge on the above would be WONDERFUL!

a good starting point would be a company called 'into egypt' they are new, and very very good. We are traveling with them in November (yes we are NOT cancelling out trip)
they got us excellent deals in 5 star hotels. Very friendly and they go out of thier way to accomodate your needs!
our contact there was Ramy Raid .

I won't lie to you touring Egypt, as a single woman was one of my most difficult trips. I traveled for about one month in the early 90's. I went to Siwa, Marsa Matru (sp), Luxor, Cairo, Alexandra. What did help me absorb the culture and the history was a cross section of reading, one art history, one history, one travel oriented book. What complimented my journey once enroute was reading Nawal el Sadaawi (sp) on the social landscape of Egypt. This was wonderful reading and I am so sorry not to see this book about Egypt’s social structure available in the U.S., other Sadaawi books are.

So after all is said and done it was an incredible hassle to tour Egypt but in hindsight I have some of my most memorable travel experiences of my life. So I say to you go for it but be careful around Luxor where I am told fundamentalist are in high numbers.
