Hidden from Egypt’s Crowded Cities - 06 Jan 2014
Residents of Siwa have been hurt by declining tourism in Egypt, which received 9.5 million tourists last year, down from over 14.7 million tourists in 2010,
before the uprising that ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak. Nationwide, the situation is gradually improving and the government says tourism could recover to
pre-crisis levels next year if regional turmoil spares Egypt. But Siwa, located just 50 km (30 miles) from war-torn Libya, still sees only a fraction of the tourists
that once visited the desert oasis, the head of Siwa's tourism authority says

A boy walks down the ruins of the old city of 'Shali', in Siwa November 22, 2014. The ancient fortress of Siwa was built on natural rock made of salt and mud-brick, natural material that is formed by the salty water of the lakes known in Siwa as Korsheif. Although now mostly abandoned and 'melted', Shali remains a prominent feature, towering five stories above the modern town.
