Today there was a really great event here in Hurghada to promote the Red Sea destination and let the world know that Egypt is safe. Tourism is really, really down these days because of recent events. Just last night driving through the city that is usually alive and full of tourists, it felt like a ghost town. I half expected a tumbleweed to roll across the street, but the turn out to today's event was big and gave us all faith that tourism in Hurghada and all of Egypt will be back soon and better than ever.
It was really fun and exciting to see everyone wearing I heart Egypt t-shirts and cheering for the country's recent victory. There was also a moment of silence to honor the martyrs of the revolution.
Here's a short video I took of an I Love Egypt conga line.
Would recent events deter you from visiting Egypt?
Today, Egypt is my Valentine ♥
