Possible camera failure

I have got into the following trap in Alexandria. Usually I’m equipped with a photo camera and a video camera for taking pics and clips in my trips. I’ve changed my Sony video camera in 2004. I used my previous camera during 10 years since 1994… But I didn’t expect that my not so old camera would fail so quickly only in three years after it was bought… But it happened in Alexandria. And I’ve learnt about it only when came back home. That’s why I have only a half of a video film which I took in Alexandria.

Since that time I take two video cameras and two photo cameras for my trips and don't bother about their possible failures.

Photo forbidden

What a pity, but photo and video sometimes are forbidden while visiting tourist sights in Egypt and Alexandria. For example - in Catacombs of Kom el-Shukafa. What should I say? !!!….!!! You understand me! I would prefer to pay a considerable sum than to watch at the Catacombs sadly sighing and muttering damnations…

It reminds me a holiday supper without wine in the restaurant.
