Aboudi's Bookshop Grand Opening
Everyone's favourite bookshop had its grand opening on Thursday 20th.
This bookshop has been providing great books in Luxor for 3 generations and is the primary outlet for all good Egyptology books in Luxor, probably in Egypt. It had recently moved locations from next door to the old Winter Palace which is being redeveloped to next door to MacDonalds behind Luxor Temple.
There were lots of local dignitaries and people from AUC publications.
I felt like a kid in a candy shop looking at all the great books. The old black and white photos were tempting as well.
Particularly liked this one aimed at kids
but decided I couldn't afford the one by Zahi at £2,600 GBP!
