@MarkMayo due to time restrictions I would prefer something that you get to and from in a single day.

@Gagravarr each country is a bit different from other. Relating ATMºs some you can use VISA, some Maestro, etc. Some countrys have many exchange points leading to low exchange rates, others not. Some country it's best to exchange money beforedeparture, others in the country itself. Some country just using ATM's might be cheaper than exchange in an exchange point.

@Flimzy my question goes behond that. Even if the political situation is stable enough to visit Cairo, the civil support systems may not be. I just want to know if, as a individual foreigner individual what my chances are.

@Flimzy I understand your point, but aren't you being a bit too analytical? Cairo has been through a rough time. I want to know if there is risk and what kind of risk it is for an average person. Than I can evaluate my chances. If I was a "rambo" I would mention it.
