Me, feluccas, history and healing in Luxor, Egypt

This is the story of a "felucca girl" in Luxor, Egypt.

I have refound my youth in this amazing country, making it my permanent home, spending my time showing tourists the wonder of the eternal River Nile on a traditional sailing boat called a felucca.

Egypt is a very spiritual land. A land of amazing energies and healing. Temples and tombs abound. Join me in experiencing the spirituality of Egypt. Reiki, Crystals, Healing, Energy Work..... all are available here.

Welcome to my world!

visa changes update

Now the visa changes are being looked at again, as tourism officials question the new rules.

While I agree that Egypt must be one of only a few countries in the world where a visa can be obtained on arrival, it has to make the visa application process easier.

It also needs to address the lack of any alternative to a tourist visa extension for the many thousands of foreigners living in Egypt, who do not meet the rather strict residency criteria. Residency is not citizenship, it is merely the authority to live in Egypt and lasts for 5 years, renewable. It does not entitle the holder of said visa to work.  Work permits are an entirely separate issue.

It would be interesting to see if enough foreign "residents" on tourist visas could get together to try to get amendments to the Residency Visa criteria and allow the tourist visa to remain just that...... a visa for short term tourists.
