TOURISM IN EGYPT ………

….WHERE HAVE ALL THE CUSTOMERS GONE?????…… IS THIS SHOP OWNER’S QUESTION TOO!

His store, offering the most tempting sweets, is in the train station of Alexandria.
I bought several packages of sticky goodies, and asked him if I could take his picture.
He shrugged his shoulders, took the cigarette out of his mouth and stood in front of his store.

Seeing the surrender and hopelessness in his eyes I was sorry I had asked to take a picture. I felt like he was saying, “There –  another poor tourist who knows nothing about our world, our life, our country, our problems – but is taking photos.”

Shukran and smiling at him did not help – it is customers he needs. More tourists, many more tourists who buy his sweets and take pictures – but when will they be back?????

More from Egypt soon
