Yeh! bet that will get the thousands of Coptics on their way with their extended families and home on a truck, I might even visit it this year with the less few hundred thousand of bodies desperately trying to find the portaloos and fending off buying yet another Chinese elluminated plastic Mary Madonna… :cool:

I think it was 2 years ago that a serious fire spread through the tented camp. I'm not sure how many were hurt but I guess that might factor into it.
