If the impossible were to ever happen, when you consider there is little change out of 1,000Le for a leg of imported Australian lamb in Arkwright's, then I would guess that it would be around 400Le per kilo. Still cheaper to go to the two pork butchers in Hurghada and stock up the freezer from there, not that I would personally speaking.

Yes I know, but only managed to get a leg once, and very nice it was, and yes, a lot cheaper. The Christian meat sellers, clean outlets, also sell it, but usually sell out as it is a popular alternative to the local un-chewable beef.

I think you mean Who2 and Dusak

It's at least 4 years since I visited a butchers...and then it was in Hurghada.

There's a good one in Sahl Hasheesh if you're ever over this way and in El Gouna...but I doubt they deliver to Luxor :lol:

I think there will be a need for something rather stronger than Imodium MT, if it's coming from a certain character I know in Hammiss,.......I really must forward an E-mail to Shnowder, if he's not to busy in his other line of work.

All I know about the Christian meat sellers, they are in a side street off Television street. The side street faces a shop selling all sorts of bags, including suitcases. There are two or three shops, all very well cleaned and all goods refrigerated or frozen. The chicken they sell is very popular with the locals, being of good quality and cheaper than most. I was dragged down this side street, so really wasn't paying attention. They only open at 10am though. After Ramadan I will get more precise details.

I hate to mention it here Dusak, but the person in question, who I am sure you will know as the meat purveyor, is for certain gthe one, and dare I say it, only, none other than,.........Hillary Briss, the well known pie seller from Royston Vasey. Believe it or not has now become Luxor's one and only original,..........local shop, for local (awaja) people.
