Bur Safajah, Egypt

We went to Hurghada, about one hour drive away, to the biggest beach resort in Egypt. It was very modern with 5-star resorts which cater to Europeans on holiday. It was very eerie since there was not a single person on the street, the outdoor restaurants, cafes, etc, were empty and most of the shops were closed. Our guide told us that the reason was due to tourist cancelations because of the Egyptian revolution.

The president of Regent joined us here and told us that when he arrived in Cairo yesterday,the large international airport was totally empty and that he was the only guest at the Four Seasons Hotel in Cairo. This country is going to have major economic probloems, more so than it already has had for many years.

The generator part arrived here from Germany and has been installed. We are back up to full power.

You're Cool
