Once Upon a Beach

Check out Foreign Policy’s slideshow on Egypt when it was Club Med in the 1930s towards mid 20th century, and then think of the beaches now, with their burq’inis and such. Out of cultural respect, I don’t have any pictures of current Egyptian women on the beach, just a sign prohibiting burqas in the pool.

Sign prohibiting Burq'inis for health reasons.
