She's lucky she didn't get picked up for patronizing a prostitute -- she was paying for sex....

P_M, it would certainly outdo Black Bart and Tara's Vegas trip reports!

Funny joke Tom!

So I take it your husband's not going on this trip, P_M?

On our trip to Egypt, men would approach my husband, pat him on his back like they knew him and would tell him that "you are one luck man", "lucky man my friend" wink wink.
Couple tried to "Hi Five" him too!!

I routinely try to remind my husband about this... and he never forgets to offer to book a one-way ticket for me to Cairo.

CAPH--No, he's not going. DH doesn't have much vacation time so I somtimes travel alone. But in this case, I won't be alone for long. ;-)

Is anyone else hearing that song in their head?

I'm just a gigolo, and everywhere I go, people know the part I'm playing"

I will be singing that all day.

If I recall correctly, you weren't alone long on the Israel trip either. In fact, only until you got on the plane in New York, right?

Should someone be tipping your husband about what happens when he doesn't go along?

OP says 'here are some things to look and listen for' but did not finish the end of the story.
Enquiring minds want to know the rest of the story.

MarthaT, Here's one red flag, "For only $20 you can hump my camel."

Ladies, don't fall for that line.

OMG P.M. I cannot stop laughing. I have to say, of all the oh-so-enticing offers I got when I was there, i did not receive any offers involving livestock.

How about "yooo are soo buutifull. I want marry. I want go to Amreeka. Where from you? New York? Florida?"

I shouldn't make fun of the English some Egyptians use -- it's just that I teach Egyptians & I live among Egyptians & I'm starting to talk Egyptian English rather than American English. Lord knows that my Arabic isn't as good as their English.

One of my favorite encounters: I was at the bus station trying to get a ticket to Farafra - the manager called the guys selling me the ticket to the back behind this glass window...when they came back out they were very excited and delivered the good news to me that the manager would really like to have a good look at me, so could I please step around where he could get the full view?

(and divewop, he did NOT look like Richard Gere unfortunately!)
good times.

My reply was, 'To be honest, I don't really care for camels -- do you have anything else?'

Followed immediately by my sister (pointing at me): 'I'll pay you to take HIM!'

Cheers,
Julian

There is a very funny movie about this subject titled "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine. Rent it if you haven't seen it, very funny.
