Dear Advisor Partners,
When you return to a place you have been visiting since you were a teenager, the little things just seem to come back as if you never forgot them. Sort of like riding a bike. Well as many of you know, I had the pleasure of hosting an epic fam trip through Egypt right after Thanksgiving, and what a trip it was. By day two, I was already back to the daily regimen of eating ful and Karkade along with the regular food I ate when visiting family in Sudan growing up.
I often talk about Egypt being back, however, nothing could have prepared me for what I saw. The sheer joy of seeing Egypt busier than I have ever seen, something everyone has been waiting almost a decade for, is the truest sign that Egypt is once again on the main stage. Add to this, all the mystique of the almost daily new discoveries as the exploration of Egypt’s history moves into high gear, the anticipation of the Grand Egyptian Museum, and the amazement of the hot air balloons over Luxor, you can see why Egypt is at the top of everyone’s bucket list.
We can’t ignore all the expansion happening alongside the new hotels being built in Cairo. The new St. Regis and its amazing Thai restaurant, the Brazilian food at the Four Seasons First Residence, or the best Turkish coffee at an outdoor venue just outside Luxor are perfect examples. Then there is the local restaurant scene offering a non-touristy view of an evening in Cairo, something we specialize in. Of course, the highlight still belongs to the Old Cataract Hotel in Aswan and the famous Winston Churchill Suite.
Getting there is easier than it seems, and a simple phone call with us will get you on your way as we answer all your PCR questions based on personal experiences traveling to and from Egypt. So I’ve just returned and already I cannot wait to go back!
Enjoy this week’s video.
