Thursday Doors: Luxor

We have just returned from a monthlong trip to Egypt and Israel! This is my first post, just in time for Norm’s Thursday Doors! On December 27, we were in Luxor, Egypt, where the members of our tour group walked from where our bus left us off through dusty streets to a restaurant for lunch. This neighborhood had many colorful doors, which I managed to snap while keeping up with the others!

I was excited to have the chance to photograph “ordinary” doors while not on a bus, after visiting awe-inspiring ancient Egyptian monuments that morning.

The woman at the edge of this photo seemed amused at my choice of subject.

Beautiful archway, with a holiday decoration – Egyptians love to decorate for Christmas. The non-Christians celebrate the Christian holidays and the Christians celebrate the Muslim holidays!

Not our restaurant, but what a beautiful entrance! (And is that Santa Claus on either side of the doorway?!)

This was a very small door – a doghouse door maybe??

I found is amazing the variety of doors in color and design I saw just in one small neighborhood!

If I could read Arabic, perhaps I would know what was behind this colorful door.

I love the paintings and decorative writing on this house (?). It seems to be part of the
Sheherazade.

  1. Oh my, oh my, I couldn’t stop sighing. What a joy of colours and designs! If it’s not colours, it’s the shape, and vice versa. Gorgeous!! So grateful for these, I haven’t been to these parts yet, thanks!
