Cheap, unqualified, rough workmanship creates a short term solution. I used to love it when they used watered down emulsion to make road markings, instead of hot rubberised paint. My wife used to call it the Presidential Touch Up. :lol:

You could say why do they want to spend money on Luxor? It does seem a bit pointless, there are no tourists and will not be for ages unless of course they find a tomb worthwhile finding and not that of a Minor Deity. When we moved our shippers came from Cairo, the refused any backshish for their efficient work, saying we do not work that way in Cairo. They spent 3 nights in Luxor, getting our things together, packing and finally collecting. They just could not believe the way Luxor did business, or the fact how in general the City was lazy and decrepit, they put it down to a lack of interest and education, saying also that you need to be proud of where you live to accomplish things.

They told me straight that to a person from the Western World the City must be a nightmare.
