In this Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012 photo, a foreign tourist enjoys a ride on a camel as she visits the historical site of the Giza Pyramids, near Cairo, Egypt. The Egyptian demonstrations against an online film that was produced by a U.S. citizen originally from Egypt and denigrates the Prophet Muhammad were part of a wider explosion of anger in Muslim countries. They happened near the U.S. Embassy, far from the pyramids of Giza on Cairo's outskirts, and a lot further from gated Red Sea resorts, cocoons for the beach-bound vacationer. Yet the online or TV images _ flames, barricades, whooping demonstrators _ are a killjoy for anyone planning a getaway, even though the protests have largely subsided. Tour guides in Egypt say tourist bookings are mostly holding, but they worry about a dropoff early next year, since people tend to plan several months ahead.(AP Photo/Khalil Hamra)
