      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I'm in Luxor, Egypt....and I'MMMMMMMMMM Drunk!

Beer...ain't the best...rumor has it that they water the local horses on one side of town and fill the bottles at a stable on the other side...hold the bottle up to the light and you might even see some stray hay!

Who cares....Mahmoud, pour me another one.

Cultural realtivism aside, don't we as Americans have a responsibility to observe our host countries sensibilities?

 

ie, Muslims do not drink and many feel it is a slap in the face if you do?

 

Just asking.

If they are willing to sell you the beer, who cares?

I suppose you'd have to be drunk to rifle through the pockets of a 4000 year dead corpse.

 

Get your history straight, moron. They're only 3500 years old and they don't have pockets.

The "host country" in this case bottles three different kinds of beer and several varieties of wine. Lots of people drink here and aside from Muslims who can choose to do what they like, there is a sizable Christian population (at least 7 million) and loads of tourists who appreciate the beverages.. Sorry I'm not as dumb as you must think I am.

My dad's been in a few countries where drinking is prohibited to the locals. Foreigners can still get a drink without causing problems. All you have to do is get a card on arrival to the country where you state that you are an alcoholic and you have to drink booze.

 

I hear it isn't too difficult to do, but I'm sure that there are a few countries where even that isn't permitted.

9:00 this morning I was at Harvey Field waiting for the sky to clear so I could do airplane stuff. I was killing time by having breakfast at the airport restaurant. The bartender was late and an irate patron was receiving special handling by waitstaff until the barkeep could show and they could get some drugs down the guy's throat. That's pathetic, 9 on a Sunday morning and you got your back up over alcohol.
