Mari Girgis

Luxor has both Christian and Moslem communities and the politics of the Middle East are equally diverse. Air your views on the situation.

Mari Girgis

Post by Who2 »

Forget Opera Aida or the Luxor Film Festival.
Mari Girgis moulid started Monday over in Razagat. Well over a million people attend (so they say)
It lasts for 7 days watching trucks loaded with movable homes
and those little comforts one needs whilst camping, all flow past my house heading South...

That's a lot of Portaloos...... 8)

I saw some photographs of the convoys going/arriving there yesterday. It reminded me of the great excitement my Coptic friends woupd be in at this time of year as I often visited just before, or just after Maris Gergis, but alas never managed to be there at the right time to go with them.

May it be a Peaceful, Safe, Happy, and Blessed event for all who attend.

Yeh! it's been a few years since the 'lunatic beardie weirdie brigade opened fire on the festival goers.
Already spotted the early leavers today, but Sunday night & Monday morning will be the big convoy days.

It's only after our 1st revolution, when Mr M let all the heavy 'crims out of 'nick to wreak havoc on travellers
along the desert road..he still lives in luxury over in sharm. c***..... 8)
