Egypt 2013

We had an awesome visit to Egypt in July 2013. It was a unique time to visit Egypt.
The military had recently removed President Morsi from office. The unrest in the
country caused governments (Canada included) to warn against travel to Egypt. Combine
this with summer heat (up to 110 F) and Ramadan and the result was virtually no tourists.
It was a photographer's dream to get photos without a single tourist in the frame.
However, it was very sad for the tourism industry and the resulting hardship on those
Egyptians that earn their living from tourism.
