SINAI, Egypt -- Moussa Salama Moussa navigated Mount Sinai's treacherous cliffs by the glow of the moon and stars almost every night for 25 years - until Egypt's revolution.
Now it has been weeks since he has made the trek alongside other Bedouin guides and tourists to watch the sun come up from a vantage point on top of the mountain.

"We need people to come because we live on tourism," Moussa said, lamenting the decline of the tourism industry plaguing the nation since last year's 18-day revolt that forced then-president Hosni Mubarak from power.
"Some people can support themselves from (what's left of) the work, but on the other hand you will find people who don't have anything," he said. "They will sell their goats and camels to feed their families."
As Egyptians prepare to vote for Ahmed Shafiq or Mohammed Morsi in Egypt's final round of presidential elections Saturday and Sunday, many such as Moussa are primarily concerned with economic welfare, as well as restoring security and stability.
In the latest sign of political chaos that some are calling a coup, Egypt's constitutional court ruled parliament invalid Thursday, meaning that the governing body elected earlier this year must be dissolved, state television said. The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces now has full legislative authority, according to the Associated Press.
"God willing, when Mohammed Morsi becomes president, everything will be fine," said Osama Ibrahim, a driver from the seaport city of Suez.
Shafiq has drawn a great deal of support from those seeking law and order - the primary appeal of his campaign. Many say the former civil aviation minister, who was also Mubarak's prime minister, is the one with the most experience. He can restore stability and revive the economy, they say.
"There's fatigue with the chaos and uncertainty of the past," said Michael Wahid Hanna of the Century Foundation, a think tank in New York City.
Some view Shafiq as a blow to the revolution. But the former regime figure attracts some voters who want a secular state, rather than rule by Islamic law.
"Shafiq is the candidate nearest to my idea about what Egypt will be," said Nader Gabra, a Coptic Christian from Cairo who lives in Dahab, a vacationer's town on the Red Sea coast. "The country must be open to all ideas and all religions."
Those who want a complete break from the old regime and believe in rule by Islamic law may look to Mohammed Morsi.
"I like Morsi's program," said Mohammad Bedouina, a shop owner from the North Sinai. "And he's afraid of God so he'll do things correctly."
Both Morsi and Shafiq have ideas on reviving the economy.
"I think they are both running on the platform that it's the private sector that is going to help," said Magda Kandil, executive director of the Egyptian Center for Economic Studies. "But Shafiq's approach is about improving the private sector by improving order and stability."
Morsi advocates providing job opportunities for the poor and empowering them through education. It is uncertain to what extent Morsi can exert power and make decisions.
"Part of it will depend on what the political landscape looks like," Hanna said. "We know he will not have a free hand because the military will have some role. They will not cede that authority."
