Well...thank you very much! I think a few of you "got it" and the rest of you just wanted to call me stupid and ignorant. Of course I DID NOT use the flash!
There was no more harm done to the tomb with my camera than if I closed and opened my eyes! Blink! No flash, no harm, no foul. Now, if I sprayed graffiti on the pyramids or dumped something in the Nile, than you can have an issue with me, but I didn't do anything wrong. I highly respect everything, everywhere I travel, never steal bits and pieces of monuments or sacred sites.
I've been around the world since 1982 and have never heard such outrage over something so innocent. This rally makes me question why I am spending $6000 to go BACK to Egypt next month to bolster Egyptian economy. I don't travel on the "cheap" and give out a lot of Baksheesh and tips. One photo is not worth all this critisim. Chill out, please!
