The event was sponsored by local businesses including Flats in Luxor. We were proud to support the initiative from local Egyptians. It was a really professional do.
Part of the sponsorship deal was some t-shirts so I persuaded the kids to wear them. My mobile sandwich boards. They thought it was a big treat although the smallest size I had was large so these were like dresses lol
Part of the area was devoted to local crafts and goods.
Personally I was pleased to see two young ladies doing the presentation. Egypt isn't just little old ladies in black but articulate, clever and bright young ladies.
Dr Abdel Halim Nur El-Din gave the opening speech. In Arabic, English and Dutch!!
But she was the star of the day
This is a line up of the organisers
Local music opened the acts
And the crowd happily clapped along
There were five sufi dancers or whirling dervish on stage. All their acts were just slightly different.
My step kids were complete mesmerised
We were very pleased with the turn out
This was the view from MacDonalds, what a fantastic back drop to any event.
What a good natured, friendly and fun event. My step kids summed it up perfectly "That was fun, can we do it again tomorrow".
