We spent sixteen days in Egypt. We saw the amazing sights of the Valley of the Kings and the Pyramids of Giza. I was talking to someone at a party and was asked "Did you feel safe in Egypt?" I thought I should talk about it.
I was asked the same question about Jordan and Turkey. I guess these are Muslim countries or Middle Eastern countries and one who has not been there may not know what to expect.
In answer to the question I respond: I have never felt unsafe in any country I have visited. No one has ever threatened me. There have been cultural difference. I have overpaid for items or services before I acclimate to the customs and currency. Immersing into a culture takes a little time, but can be done.
