Without sounding like an Ignoramous (an ignorant person),
I've been wanting to visit Egypt for a long time (high on my list of 100 places to visit before I die). Not sure when this visit will occur, but I should begin making inquiries so I will know what to expect.
Is there a time of year that is considered "off season", so hopefully airfares and hotels are less expensive?
What is the weather?
Where is the best area to stay for freedom to visit the museum, and to take side trips...ex. Luxor?
Is Cairo near the Nile? I would love to cruise this river.
What is the currency...and what is the current rate compared to the American dollar?
How is safety for Americans? Better yet, what is the attitude for Americans?
Are there flights directly from JFK...and what is the best airline?
Thank you much for any responses.
