Question 8 – What would be the best thing we, as fans of Egyptology, can do to re-encourage tourism to return to Egypt?
All over the world in my lectures, I assure everyone that Egypt is safe. I think everyone who loves Egypt should do the same. Recently, a Polish company and an Egyptian company came to ask me if I'd give lectures for American groups visiting Egypt, and they wanted to make publicity everywhere and come to meet me. They even made an ad in Time Magazine. We need tourism to come back because with the money that comes from tourism we can restore the Egyptian monuments. And I always say that the Egyptian monuments do not belong only to Egypt, but to the people all over the world.
