Egypt is a mostly conservative country, so the following will avoid any awkward moments:
- Sacred ground Remove your shoes before entering a mosque.
- Touching Don't touch someone from the opposite sex in public.
- Feet Don't show the soles of your feet; it's considered disrespectful.
- Hands Eat with your right hand; the left hand is used for ablutions.
- Ramadan Don't eat or drink in public during the fasting month of Ramadan.
