A trip to the West Bank Luxor should not be complete without visiting the old village if you get a chance visit a house and see how the locals live before they are all gone

This city was moved, the original sat on top of the now guarded tombs, where the locals would dig and loot them from the privacy of their living rooms. The poverty is exceptional, so it is hard to fault them for something that continued for hundreds of years that supported families.

With a friend we came to Qurna village. I drove to Luxor so it was different where we saw a few places. In the houses, some make alabaster stone products and also have some others for sale. They will often invite you in for drinks and discussions. We had some tea with the locals and plain tobacco shisha.
