John Hamilton – British Consul Visits me on the West Bank

If you saw a police escort come to my house I haven’t been arrested lol I just was visited by John Hamilton from the British Embassy, so all my tweets and facebook comments were worth it.

We had a full and frank discussion at which I raised

  • If Hurghada is safe why isn’t Luxor 
  • Archaeological digs can not plan their season 
  • Elderly Family members can not visit their grandchildren 
  • The sufferings of the people of Luxor 
  • The experience of my guests 
  • No single tourist has been harmed, which Ehab Gaddis confirmed 
  • The travel advice is causing anti British feeling 
  • And lots and lots of other things that have been discussed on forums and facebook 

He explained he was on a fact finding trip and would then present his recommendations to the FCO in London. Fingers crossed people and keep the pressure up.

Well done Jane, lets hope someone takes notice and the advice is changed for Luxor!
