Half-Finished Buildings A Symbol Of Forgotten Promise In Egypt

Marsa Alam is a region of more than 100 miles of beautiful coastlines, coral reefs and diving spots. But the city itself is a microcosm of neglect in Egypt since the revolution. It is a ghost town of unfinished construction and promised infrastructure that still doesn't exist. There is no power grid, no water so local hotels and resorts must provide their own generators and water source. And a diesel crisis has hit business hard. When there is no fuel, tour operators can't power their boats or generators and can't take advantage of the few tourists who visit the area.
