Photographer's Note

Karnak Temple - Great Hypostyle Hall. A warning for all photographers who visit any tourist attractions in Egypt. Beware of the locals approaching you they are only there to pray on tourists especially if they see a nice camera and camera bag on your back. They will start off by taking you around for the perfect camera angles of the places you are visiting. They are only out to make money off of you. Don't talk to them or engage with them. My trip leader said don't make eye contact with them I tried that but it didn't work. Every place we visited I was a magnet for them and they are relentless. "I have three children to support" NOT MY PROBLEM!!!! I had already booked another trip to Egypt for October 2020 and I promptly canceled it when I returned from this trip. I have been all over the world and this was the worst experience with the locals! Egyptians make a living off of tourism and with tourism down in Egypt since 2011 they have less people to pray on.
