TOURISTS – SHOW RESPECT

Many people in this country are displeased when immigrant, or visitors come to the US and want to keep their way of life, and their way of dress. I have heard people say, “Why don’t they stay at home, if they don’t want to change and adjust?”

So my question is why don’t these people apply the idea of change and adjustment when travelling to other countries – especially Muslim countries! Seeing some of my fellow Americans  on my recent trip to Egypt I felt ashamed for them – ashamed that they  showed so little respect for the culture and people of the country – and ignorance can not be an excuse – who can be so ignorant to forgets to get dressed? It looks more like arrogance !

Confucius said, “Do not impose on others what you do not desire others  to impose on you!” So please wear a shirt instead of a camisole – or you will have to take your  own advice and stay home.

More from Egypt soon

    That is a really good point, and I love the way you make it relate back to your own country.
