Hi does anyone know if the hassle free shop is still open in Luxor? it was such a pleasure to be able to look around and buy some of my keepsakes in peace, the shop keeper was really nice and I would advise anyone to buy their bits and bobs there,It was past the Temple going towards Karnak. Also is it still ok to give children pens as a small gift? the last time I was there a waiter asked please can I have one of your pens !! he was so pleased to receive one.I am looking forward to going back in 3 weeks time to Luxor with its wonderful history and cultures, regards Liz.
