• I will be traveling to Egypt next week. Wondering if anyone on the ground can provide an update on the security situation in Cairo? Will be heading there as well as Luxor and Aswan--however these two should be no problem. Thanks for any updates or related info.

    i stay in cairo since 5 days also during the 25. january means the demonstration against mursi, for myself i havent been in danger the last days, if you are avoiding to get between police and demonstrants it is not a problem for your safety i cab really recommend you to stay here, it is a amazing feeling not to see all this pictures in TV bt real life

    Well staying away from tahreer and down town area is the most important ... If u r not close to these areas u ll feel nothing is going on in the country

    Hey Jon, as above. Its easy to stay away from demos - you will have no problems. Downtown seems to have the stench of tear gas around at the moment - thats nasty!

    Cairo is alright. If you're antsy, avoid Downtown/Tahrir.
