Just a little something to ponder!

You all know, of course, why industry isn't allowed in Luxor? Why the people are either compelled to make their living from tourism, slaving on farms or travelling long distances for other employment? No?

Well, it's because the authorities don't want any pollution to further damage the priceless and magnificent antiquities. So it's rather sad to see just how much some locals care about this policy, or for the antiquities themselves.

I snapped this from the East Bank Corniche yesterday evening. I am told that such burning is illegal, but with the current lack of law enforcement.....we can see just how important these timeless and irreplaceable monuments are to some of the locals.

It seems typical, I'm afraid. "It's OK as long as you don't get caught!" Maybe they've been taking lessons from British bankers? Who knows?
