Letter to Tourism Minister

To the Egyption Minister of Tourism

We enjoyed our two weeks in your country. There is no doubt that Egypt has many great monuments representing thousands of years of history but, sadly, it also has trash. Trash everywhere from the Pyramids to the streets of Aswan. Everywhere in large amounts and it is the most notable feature. On the train from Cairo to Aswan they would open the door after we left the station and dump the trash along the tracks.
Travel sometime to other countries that have large amounts of tourist and imagine what it would do to their tourist industries if they had large amounts of trash everywhere also.
