Last year was my first time going to Egypt, I was not to certain that I would enjoy it, as I had heard bad things about the Country. First of all, I LOVED it. I went to sharm el sheikh, It was so so hot, and my hotel was great, the staff in most hotels over there are friendly (looking for tips). It has a lot to offer although it is a poor country, I cant fault nothing about the place. I went on a 'stargazing' trip. 10am-8pm.. This trip included going on camels through the desert, stargazing at night.. and having a great laugh.. I was lucky enough to see Venus so clearly and also the moon.
