To Serve & Protect
So, going out into the desert, to see pyramids, temples, etc., is a high-temperature proposition.
But imagine having to do that day after day.
That's the job of the "tourist police" here - to be out in the sun, and protect us tourists from things like terrorism, falling boulders, and accidental demands for freedom of speech, expression and movement.
As you can see, it's a pretty tough gig. They do it for less than minimum wage, plus some baksheesh.
