A Visit to Egypt

I made two visits to Egypt in late 2010 and early 2011 just before the mass demonstrations that forced Hosni Mubarek to step down. The first trip was with my mom and my cousin and included the major historic sites in Cairo and Upper Egypt (can never get used to the fact that south is up river on the Nile). When I returned on a work-related trip in January 2011, I spent a couple days in Alexandria on the Mediterranean coast and Dahab on the Red Sea. I was then meant to leave on the day the protests kicked into high gear, which turned my return into an escape saga.
