It's been a few years since my last trip to Egypt, and I haven't heard word one from friends who travel and work there, or used to; for all I know they may have bailed out during the past year. Does anyone know whether, say, Istoril and Tabbouli in Cairo have survived? What about Khoshary Tahrir? What about Pharoah's Hotel on the West Bank near Luxor, or the restaurants in Luxor proper?

How are the street cart vendors making out?

I'd love a firsthand report if anyone here has one to give.
