2250 Tourists in Luxor?

Post by newcastle » Fri Nov 18, 2016 11:22 am

Director General of Luxor Antiquities, Mostafa Waziry, just announced that last Friday saw the visit of 2250 tourists to Luxor. “According to our tickets sale, the amount of foreigners who visited the popular tourist attractions reached over two thousand people,” Waziry told Tahrir News.

This is the first time something like this happens since 2011. Only last month, direct flights between London’s Heathrow and Egypt’s Luxor resumed.

I'm not sure how accurately you can correlate ticket sales with tourist numbers.

Presumably many were on day trips from Hurghada & elsewhere....and each may have visited at least 3 sites.

Must admit I have seen more tourists in the past week or two, there were actually about 8 in a hotel near me. Normally it has a padlock on the gate.
Also some friends have been staying here that I know visited some of the sites.

Couple of days ago while traveling through Luxor approximately sixty calesh passed me transporting what to me looked like visitors from the Caribbean as most, male and females had Dreadlocks. For the first time since living here they had a police escort front and rear.

Whatever the reasons for them being here, each carriage was overflowing with white smily teeth enjoyment. Can't remember the last time I set eyes on a foreign smile in Luxor. :D
