Egypt and Syria

Where and How: I went to Cairo, Egypt, and Damascus, Syria, for a year with the United Nations Peace Keepers.

Best Advice: Boil your water or drink from bottles in Egypt; the water is fine in Damascus, but some street vendors' fare is questionable. As in any developing nation, use caution.
