I'm never comfortable, nor do I feel safe, in most of the US.

I went to an all-inclusive resort in Sharm El Sheik, Egypt.
It was great! I went diving every day in the Red Sea.
But to stay there and not leave? Why bother spending the money?
I'm curious...in Egypt were you at all warned about going out without a male escort? And did you feel you had to be careful to dress more covered up than usual, or were your western clothes okay? Basically, did anyone at the resort caution you in any way about going out?
