Bus Rides:  Smoking,  stinky people, 24 hour ride from hell in Egypt, haggling over 50 cents.  (Tanzania photos)136-3643_IMG.JPG (428021 bytes)

I bought a digital camera, now what do I do with these full disc?  Web site follies.

Vomit Ferry Rides:  Puking dude

Airlines:  Egypt Air Sucks

Exchanging money at the Cairo Airport.  None of the official exchange booths will buy back the Egyptian dollar.  These people make money from buying and selling money but the employees still won't take back the stinking pound.

Transportation woes.  Who's story is more full of bull ("it's a new gov't program")?  Which ferry co. to use?  Where is it?  Is it really the fast ferry?  Who to believe for directions.
