Tea Time

Tea Time

Luxor’s souks (markets) offer all sorts of souvenirs, clothing and jewelry, some of it kitsch, some fine and uniquely crafted. As you visit the necropolis, now as in centuries past, souvenir sellers will display statuettes of the animal-headed gods made of alabaster and stone. The Valleys of the Kings and Queens are dotted with alabaster workshops, where this translucent local stone is handcrafted into vases, bowls and statues. The mud-brick buildings are covered with brightly colored paintings showing scenes of ancient and modern Egyptian life.
