A positive update on conditions in Luxor. The joint Egyptian America mission to South Asasif (Tomb T223) started work on Monday. The mission is led by Dr Elena Pishikova, the team includes John Billman, Birgit Schoer, a Spanish epigraphic team and others from the UK and USA. This is the first mission to start this season and a sign that things are returning to normal.
Generally things are a little quieter for the time of year but there are signs that tourists are taking advantage of excellent deals and returning.
Other than fewer tourists things for visitors are much as normal and now is an excellent time to visit to see the uncrowded monuments.
