While traveling in Europe, I enjoy meeting countless Americans and fans of my TV series and guidebooks. While the political craziness has dented tourism across the board here in Egypt, there are plenty of visitors . . . but almost no Americans. In 10 days in Egypt I met exactly one person who recognized me (and was a public television supporter)¿a Sufi Muslim from Toronto.
