Why ask for before and after photos from North Africa, when what you really want is to be somewhere modern? Luxor was never modern - believe it or not, but that is what attracts some of us plastic dwellers who want a break from it all.
You cannot document your way out of the fact that you were blind and naive. You have found the right place for you to be, I hope. Perhaps it took some years of living in donkey dong, like you have said that we all do, to appreciate the true value of cereal and candy, so that you can now feel at home in a modern place with electricity, shower, infrastructure and freedom.
