Dying is always an option, but seems pretty permanent! :-) I just wrote a letter to Dr. Mamdouh El-Beltagui, Minister of Tourism, on behalf of many such as yourself who don't have the means to start their own businesses or rent a shop of their own in a tourist hotel. You obviously have access to the Internet, and Twitter and Facebook will help you find customers, both internationally and locally. There may also be those interested in funding small businesses abroad for a small percentage of profits. I assume you've already tried getting a short-term capital loan from a local bank? (How good are you at massage?) Some advice: Don't be a street vendor! Stay within the health club or hotel, and learn what your customers want. I just returned from Egypt and was appalled by how often I was cheated.
