I leave on Sunday for my first visit to Egypt. I'll be in Cairo for 3 days and then a cruise on the Nile. Looking at weather forecasts, it appears I can expect daytime highs in the mid to upper 90s. Low humidity at least, but that's still awfully hot.
If you've visited Egypt, can you give me some tips for clothes to stay relatively comfortable? Any issue with men wearing shorts and t-shirts (with a hat and sunscreen of course)? What about bringing an umbrella for shade?
