Train

Post by Chris » Sun Feb 28, 2016 5:28 pm

I travelled by train from Luxor to Aswan last week. I could not believe that all the platforms at Luxor, Esna, Edfu, Kom Ombo and Aswan stations had been dug up! There were big holes in what used to be the platforms and piles of builders rubble everywhere. The platforms were like a giant obstacle course. People were trying, with great difficulty, to carry their luggage in and around the potholes and rubble - no use dragging the luggage! Whoever had the crazy idea of digging up all the platforms at the same time! :x

They were that way since at least a month ago in Luxor, and there was some famous Egyptian actor or singer or something who came to Luxor for a visit and said this was a terrible way to encourage domestic tourism.
