Are you serious? Would Sudan (visa free for Egyptians) or Ethiopia (visa
on arrival) be better?

I am not sure that citizens of the fist world countries really appreciate
what does it mean to be able to enter most of the countries without visa.

Not that I am defending the decision to host Wikimania in Alexandria, and
