I have just returned from the local market, took my fruit and veg Out of bags and thrown most of it away or bagged it up for the chickens. I only had to walk for 20 mins how come it did not last the journey, wobbly cucumbers wilted coriander, tomato's almost pulp. Waste of time waste of money. I don't have a problem with foreign food if it's good quality! I don't mind paying for quality either, but 6 years ago quality goods were available for people willing to pay, now they are not.
People can change or alter my words for their own advantage, that's up to them, but to say Luxor has not changed is a load of utter g------e, sorry but you seem to be in denial.
Places throughout the world either improve or hold steady depending on the financial position, what they don't do is step backward.
My friends know where I stand and how I feel my future should be, it's a pity I don't have more friends, isn't it? Or is it?
I keep on saying that if I had know what the place was going to turn out like I would never have bought property how many times do I have to repeat myself. I also make no secret that until I realised it would do no good I was prepared to do my bit to promote tourism. If I was to be asked now the same question I was asked 6 years ago, "Would I like to live in Luxor" my answer may be different. But no one knew 6 years ago how much a vibrant city would fall. I honestly believe that when people say this that and the other they are in denial, the truth is more likely they cannot afford to live elsewhere.
Let's look at places you may frequent, would you honestly recommend them if they were in the UK, of course not, some of the places I have been recommended, I would not recommend to my worse enemy, sat around eating food among the stink of cats pi.., sat on cushions that are invested. Just think if you were back home would you recommend these places. Those you recommend to will think you are mad. Look at the quality of clothes for sale, now that is really what you call throw away fashion, and if you want good clothes you have to get on a plane for an hours flight or get them posted to yo and pay a fortune in tax.
Again 6 years ago there was money to make improvement to these places, now there is none, and again I am saying that LUXOR HAS changed since I moved here. Stop kidding yourselves, I have no problems if people want to live the way they do, but please do not dictate to others if they want to live differently if given the choice. If you were still in the UK would you be OK with dirt floors, would you be ok with curtains separating bedrooms, would you be happy with s---pans in the floor instead of flush toilets? OK I appreciate that these things still exist in even new build homes, but that is not just cultural it's a lot to do people have no money to improve their lives. A new villa has been built near me, when I inquired why no flush toilets the reply - no money, when I inquired what type of floor covering they were putting down they replied none- no money. It's because there is none of this so called money about that sales, manufacturing etc have declined.
