A Market For Me

A Market For Me

The city of Luxor is one of Egypt’s largest tourist hubs and destinations. In recent years, the political turmoil has hit this part of the country particularly hard. The markets, once packed with tourists from around the world, are filled with locals capitalizing on the sales. Shopkeepers, who speak what seems like every language, call out greetings. I was the only foreigner that I saw as I walked through the back streets and spoke with the friendly locals.

    • Yeah it is a good time, and their economy needs it! I spent two years living there and definitely benefited from being able to explore the amazing history without the swarms of tourists. Thanks a lot!
