Nile River Cruise

If you are planning a Nile River cruise this year, you might want to rethink your decision.

With the unrest in Egypt, you may be putting your family and yourself in grave danger. You have to understand that you are not welcome in Egypt, they want your tourist dollars, but don't expect to be greeted warmly to them you are an infidel. According to their Muslim religion a nonbeliever can be murdered without consequences. Doesn't that make you want to jump on a plane and go there. So I urge you, for your safety to rethink your travel plans or you may end up with your head rolling around in the desert.

Travel Warning

If you are planning to travel to any islands in the Middle East. I would strongly advise you to reconsider. Yesterday, September 11 Muslim fanatics attacked two of our diplomatic missions, one in Egypt, one in Libya. The ambassador to Libya was murdered along with three staff members.

If you are traveling to any Muslim islands you could be in grave danger of losing your life. You cannot depend on the State Department to help you their response after the attacks was to apologize for our country. They now say they will investigate the circumstances. You must remember the Muslims in these countries hate Americans for their way of life. So if you have any travel plans that would put you in any Muslim island or countries I would suggest you cancel them immediately.

This is enchanting and we found a beautiful beach with clear blue-green water and sugar white sand. Even though it was getting late in the season, we did find quite a few tourists who were enjoying the beach. The area had the usual amenities such as beach chairs and umbrellas for rent as well as jet skis and paddle boats.We had lunch at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Restaurant which was a pleasant experience. We dined in their outdoor patio to enjoy the beach views and sunshine. The food was well prepared and tasty. I tried their spicy shrimp with garlic bread and their special hush puppies.
