Bill, great photos. I wish I had gone when I was still able. In 1983, I took my kids to Hawaii. I wish it had been Africa. I also left some comments on your blog.
1200 years ago Islam was spread through the middle east and North Africa Heracleion by destroying idols, churches and temples and by killing non-believers everywhere.
The old Gods were offended and they hid Heracleion beneath the sea. Now the Old Gods may finish the job and hide the Pyramids and the tombs and temples at Luxor beneath a sea raised high by Global Warming.
I think it is as likely that the Salafists will blow up the pyramids and other temples of infidels. That should fix the tourist problem for Egypt.
Re mindless bureaucracy: there’s a magician who has one rabbit, for pulling out of hats, etc…the USDA is requiring him to have a have in place “a written disaster plan, detailing all the steps I would take to help get my rabbit through a disaster, such as a tornado, fire, flood, etc. They not only want to know how I will protect my rabbit during a disaster, but also what I will do after the disaster, to make sure my rabbit gets cared for properly. I am not kidding–before the end of July I need to have this written rabbit disaster plan in place, or I am breaking the law.” LINK
