Hey, at least you've been to Africa! (Egypt, I mean.)
I've been to Egypt, but not really to Africa (if Africa starts at the Suez Canal). When I was in Eilat, I crossed the border into Taba for a few minutes, just so I could say I had been to Egypt (and now it's paying off!!!). I spent more time in line at passport control than actually there.
if airports dont count, than I don't think this trip to taba qualifies. sorry.
I got my passport stamped in Egypt, and set foot on Egyptian soil! If you change planes at an airport, you don't go through immigration and don't legally enter that country -- you're still in transit,
