I developed an "online friendship" with the guide we used in Egypt a few years ago. His business is way down and he has taken on a second job at the Museum of Cairo in order to get by. He has a Masters degree in Egyptian History and is an excellent guide but the Americans and Europeans are not coming to Egypt since the uprising and he doesn't see them returning in the same numbers as before the uprising. According to him, he is not the only one suffering because of this.

Take care,
