My Mom and I are getting ready to go on the Jewels of Egypt tour in May (we're soooo excited!!!). I read in the Egypt Dossier that it is a good idea to wear clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. I found a few pairs of capris that I'm considering buying, but when I sit down my knees are exposed. When I'm standing they are completely covered though. I was just wondering if this was ok or if I should keep looking for something that covers my knees even when I'm sitting? I just want to make sure that I'm respectful.
Also, I am considering bringing a couple of casual skirts as well. I thought that that would be a good way of staying cool while still dressing modestly. I wouldn't wear them on days where we are riding donkeys or climbing Mt. Sinai, but are there a few days where I could get by wearing a skirt?
My last question is about footwear. I am planning on bringing a good pair of walking shoes, but could I also get by wearing sandals? I was considering bringing a pair of flip flops and some nicer sandals as well. Would these be ok?
Sorry if these are somewhat silly questions. I just want to make sure that I'm on the right track. Thank you so much for your help!
