To The People Writing Hate-Filled Comments on my Blog about Egypt

Monday, May 24th, 2010

I have gotten a bunch of hate-filled comments on posts I wrote about Egypt three years ago.  All these comments have come in the past few months.  I have deleted almost all of them (why leave them?)  Not to mention, none of the authors included their real email addresses.

So before you decide to write a rant about how horrible I am for writing posts about Egypt, here are a few things to consider: 

1. Maybe you don’t understand sarcasm or “kidding,” “joking” or “tongue in cheek” statements. 

2. Sure, I complain about things that happened during our trip that may have been inconvenient and uncomfortable.  That’s why this is a personal BLOG and not an unbiased travel article.  I write about the good things AND the bad things. 

3. Many of you don’t seem to understand that I enjoyed my time in Egypt.

4. If you still want to write a hate-filled, angry comment, maybe you should do some yoga or deep breathing to calm yourself down.  I don’t think it is so healthy to get so angry about something as insignificant as my blog.

If you STILL have a burning desire to write a hate-filled, nasty comment, rest assured I will delete it immediately, so don’t waste your time. 

To everyone else… HI!  WELCOME! 🙂

Aqaba, Jordan & Onward

We took a car from Petra to Aqaba this morning.

Our driver asked us how Ramadan was going for us. We didn’t know how to answer, so we said, Good. He asked if we were fasting and then said he didn’t like Ramadan. Again, we were unsure of how to answer. jim asked if he didn’t like it because of the fasting, and the driver sort of snapped back, No, that’s not it. He said it is very difficult to fast and not drink water all day as a cab driver. We didn’t say anything else. [read on]

Snorkeling the Red Sea in Sharm

Saturday, October 6th, 2007
Yesterday we spent most of the day on a boat and snorkeling in Ras Mohammed Marine Park. I dare say the snorkeling was maybe the best I've experienced. Along with tons of super colorful fish, we saw a little brown ... [Continue reading this entry]
