Toiletries and Medical Supplies:
Sponge - you never know what the bathroom will be like in budget accommodations, so I always bring a good sponge, just in case!
I also bring a couple of extra towels, really small ones like dish towels, easier to wash , rinse out and dry than a full size towel, in case the towels are not to one's liking.
Photo Equipment: THree camers, Digital, 35MM and the throwawy variety. The throwaway is good if you are going on a drunken spree and don't want to be held responsible for ruining or losing the camera. I once did at a traditional Polish dance in Gdansk in 1987.
Miscellaneous: Photocopied maps, I make photocopies of the maps from the guidebook and carry them around, as much as I love my Rough Guide, it gets heavy at the end of the day.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Water in Egypt is not drinkable from the tap! Stock up lots of mineral bottled water upon arrival!!!
Try not to eat anything that's not cooked - many in my tour group was having a hard time after eating salad from the cruise ship. So do bring some form of medicine for those with weak stomach... You may also want to bring some biscuits or cup noodles.
Digital camera, viewcam or panaromic camera & batteries are a must even if you're not a photographic fanatic like I'm! Egypt is a great subject for all! Think of 45 centuries of civilization!
