    The harassment to part with our money was far more bothersome.
    Luxor was where the German tourists were massacred about 10 years or so ago, wasn't it?

    Yes, and I'm sure memories of the news coverage have kept far more people from visiting Egypt in the last 14 years than articles about sexual harassment ever will. But of course the odds of getting caught up in something like that are extremely low. By far the greatest risk to one's life in Egypt is the traffic.
