Concert and book-signing

Post by Brian Yare » Wed Nov 09, 2016 4:24 pm

... on 10 November 2016, Luxor Westbank

On Thursday, November 10, 2016, the newly opened shop, Sandouk, will host a concert with classical Arabic music. Taha and his musicians play for us flute, oud, violin and drum.

In the breaks Hans Mauritz reads from his recently published book "Ägypten verstehen - seine Sprache erleben", (Understanding Egypt - experience its language), copies of which will be available for purchase and signing by the author.

As the space at this new location is limited, an early registration is requested (01000934980).

Where? Sandouk, Luxor Westbank, Ramla, at the 'recovered' canal behind the Nile Valley Hotel

When? 10.11.16 from 17 to 19 in the evening

How much? 20 LE (hot drink included)

[With excuses for the translation from German]

I did not know that! This evening, I ran into the hosts and told them that everyone seemed to be going. "We're prepared!", they said.

This is from facebook:

Actually it means "box" (e.g.the sort you'd keep trinkets in).....but is used colloquially for a skip.

Some locals have wondered why this name was chosen. It sounds like "Container Shop".
The original idea was to bring a huge blue treasure box with local crafts to the five star hotels. The woman behind it felt that a showroom would be better, and that turned into a shop, but it all began with a very big box.
