National Geographic Traveler: Egypt’s New Day

Posted on August 3, 2011 by Alexandra Avakian

On the NatGeo website : some pix I shot for Egypt's New Day, in the September 2011 issue of National Geographic Traveler.

It was truly amazing to be in the great Pharaonic sites with so few tourists. While that is fantastic for the traveler, times are tough for Egypt, whose economy depends on tourism.

As with all countries undergoing dramatic change, its important for tourists to pay attention to the local news and avoid flash points.
