Luxor Wedding Celebrations

Posted by on Mar 26, 2007 in Egypt | 2 Comments

The other day on my way home from dinner in Luxor I ran into a wedding party—literally—they were standing in the middle of the road. After about 15 minutes of horns and drums and a little uninspired dancing the couple went inside a photo studio. I had my little camera so I took a video. Street Wedding It’s not been edited down so it might take a while to load. Notice how all of the cars are driving by. I was standing on the traffic median.

I think a lot of you will be happy to hear that I just posted my long story about my time in Petra. Here it is, it’s long, so I hope it was worth the wait. I’m getting email notices on the new and post-dated posts so let me know if you’re signed up but didn’t get the Petra post and I’ll look into it. I’m still working on Tajikistan (I know, can you believe it?) and it’s going to be a four-part series. Part one is all ready to go but I think it’s better if I post it all at once. Hang in there, you will eventually see the infamous eyebrow-dyeing picture.

    hello there…thanks for linking the video. I love seeing video on travel blogs, it helps to bring the stories more to life. Do you have other video from your trip thus far? Just a thought, but maybe you can add a video section to the website too? Anyways, I am enjoying the updates and all your travels. Thanks 🙂 BARBS

    I’m glad you like it. I don’t have the software on my computer to get the file down to a manageable size so I’m always hesitant to put them up. There’s definately a few videos up in India. I actually have quite a few from my trip in Myanmar on Phase 1 that I never put up and will probbaly get around to it when I get home.
