A young tourist who scrawled his hame on the almost 3,500-year-old Luxor Temple in Egypt has drawn the ire not of Egypt but his home country of China.
The graffiti, which translates roughly as "Ding Jinhao wuz here," was etched onto the the Luxor's wall engravings with a rock. A photo of the tag was taken by a different tourist and posted on China's Twitter-like Sina Weibo microblogging site.
The photo has caused outrage in China, where only last week Chinese visitors to foreign countries received an official admonition to straighten up and fly right. There is much hand-wringing in China over the image of the country abroad and the graffiti has been highlighted as an example of why China has such a poor reputation.
