Sorry. I was reading the post from work, which blocks almost every photo sharing provider such as photobucket and the such, hence I saw no pics.

As to price I that in large measure it's based on what the local market can bare and of course, excise taxes/tarrifs. Clearly Egypt has a much lower per capita income then the U.S. (although not for long it seems) so the distributors/vendors charge what they think they can get away with.
Exactly, also besides the per capita income, the supply chain within Egypt is shorter (Factory is in Monofeyya, less than 150 KM north of Cairo, no import/export duties ...etc.) and tobacco change hands from factory to smoker much less than it does to the export markets.
