It's not a danger but more of a warning...where ever you go in Egypt make sure you take some toilet paper... ;) I guess around half of the places we went didn't have any toilet paper...some (mostly where you paid to enter) did have toilet paper though. Don't expect too much of the toilets in Egypt and you won't be grossed out... ;)
We asked our doctors about vaccinations for our trip to Egypt... We were told that we would need Hep A, Hep B, Typhoid, Polio, Diptheria and Tetanus vaccinations as well as Malaria tablets (mostly because we were also going to some 'jungle' parts of Thailand on our big honeymoon trip).
Make sure you see your doctor very early (at least six months before travelling) because some shots require more than one dose over a certain period of time... Others need time to get into your system before you travel.
If you get hassled by the locals all you need to do is say firmly and loudly "La Shakrun" (our guide said to say it la shock-run)... We found that most of the time the locals would just joke around with us - "ah, you are so beautiful", "how many camels for your wife", "I have what you want", "you have beautiful eyes" etc...we just laughed it off most of the time and that usually worked. But if someone was pushy then our La Shakrun came in handy.
