Spotted on Facebook
we mentioned earlier today on Luxor Times magazine page. Minister of
Tourism hand two checks for 1.5 million Egyptian pounds support for a
year for the Calesh drivers to support their family with food supplies
and their horses too. After handing the funds to the Calesh drivers
boss, the minister said "This find on one condition which is to treat
the guests in good manners and to make sure the drivers and their
carriages are licensed."
The Egyptian – American team South Asasif Conservation Project has finished its 20-week 2013 season in September. We had a highly productive season despite the numerous political problems the country has experienced over the summer. Luxor remained peaceful and our Egyptian colleagues were extremely helpful and supportive of our work. We want to express our gratitude to our international team, sponsors and the Ministry of State for Antiquities for making this season a success.

How unfair is it that Luxor Egypt is classed as unsafe to travel to but Kenya is OK. The UK travel advice for Egypt is ridiculous, lacking credibility and not reflecting reality. Check it out for yourself.

If getting travel insurance is the only thing stopping you travelling to Luxor. I have located a company who provides insurance UNDER THE CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES. "Frontier travel insurance cover Egypt at the moment; they also cover Syria and Afghanistan if that appeals to you! http://www.frontiertravelinsurance.com/"
