News from Luxor Videos taken 22/11/11

People from all over Egypt are watching events in Tahrir Square. It seems a bit remote in Luxor where the locals are more concerned by daily living. Their existence is hand to mouth and dependent on tourists. Here are some comments made down by the Nile this afternoon by local men who drive taxis, sell scarves and captain boats who are staring at an empty embankment that should be bustling with tourists in this, the high season for the holiday industry.

I think it is vital to reassure our tourists that Luxor is over 400 miles from events in Cairo and perfectly safe to visit. These videos were taken in the center of Luxor, you can see Luxor temple in the background

If anyone else wants to tell their stories contact me, have video camera will travel
