Thanks. There are only 3 countries in the entire "Muslim World" where alcohol is banned. Many Muslim-majority countries have historic monuments that are much older than Europe (or the rest of the world for that matter) and many of them like Egypt, Turkey, Morocco etc. are filled with tourists.

PS: Muslims come in all sizes and shapes, from black to blond. So blond hair is not news to them.

Wonderful! There's a train station in Cairo that has amazing Islamic architecture. I'll see if I can find pics.
