  1. It was utterly exasperating dealing with the constant, endless touts and scammers in Egypt. I so would love to go to Egypt again but the safety question and the risk of being constantly pestered and scammed are very off-putting.

  2. when was this filmed? how to find the full version of the Egypt series? I'm planning to visit Egypt /Jordan end of this summer, so I have been watching all things Egypt. From Youtubers' Vlogs, the Egyptians seems to go about their life since last summer, no mask in crowded places by Sept 2020. on April 3 evening, I watched the Egyptian paraded 22 mummies from the original museum to the grand Egyptian Civilization Museum, it's so fascinating. The officials were all mask up, they have to show the media that they are ready for tourist. I'm hoping to see this land this year.
