Hi, it's warm here tonight, Just turned 11pm and the
(Click on the picture to make it bigger) temperature on the terrace is a nice 21.3c which is over 70 in real money. Rough work, but someone has to do it!
As some of you know, Freda and I like to roam around the hotels watching the tourists. The Etap is one of our favourites! We can sit outside drinking tea or coffee, with possibly an apple shsisha. Of course this hotel has actually been the Mercure all the time we've been coming to Luxor, but it is still known by its former name "Etap". I suppose that it is the same as the Nile Palace still being referred to as the Meridien and the Maritim Jolie Ville still being called the Movenpick! Well, as we see yet another name change, along with some alterations, I wonder how long it will be before the Etap/Mercure is known locally as the "El-Luxor", which, as you can see, is now the official name of this very nice hotel?
