i am going on the Jewels of Egypt tour beginning May 15.
I have reviewed the recent posts on the subject -Post from Gozo on April 23- Imtrav responded that "everything was A ok"- unfortunately the recent attack at the museum proved otherwise as per Joannes post of May 3.
I do understand that there are no guarantees about safety and security and that we must put these things in perspective- however it looks like it could be a new campaign to me.
Based on the fact that Imtrav feels that their cairo office is very close to events, could you please provide any more information on whether this is a new threat or group and, consequently, whether we should adjust our normal plans in any way, especially in planning how we spend our free time in Cairo- (e.g. avoid the islamic area of town ). Finally, is there any additional concerns about other parts of Egypt?
P.S. I am partly hoping to alay my mothers fears who is worried sick about me going !!
Tks very much
