This is the reading on my computer  at 15. 30  Sunday may the 9th 2010
this is the reading the world will see for the temperature in Luxor Egypt, the real temperature is over 50. I have a thermometer on my patio in the shade,  and we are just starting the summer this month we should get some nice breezes as its  chamsin weather (wind) but it will still be hot and in the late 40s early . 50s  no point in telling the world how hot its here,  because it will effect the tourist trade  those who are here  will be stuck indoors with the air con on full blast. some like the people on the  two buses in the photo 8 people   have already booked the tour so rather than loose money they brave the heat,
but many refuse to leave the comfort of air conditioned rooms. its too hot to sit by the pool even in the shade,    so welcome to sunny  Egypt

View from my balcony of Luxor Temple  and where I place the thermometer


The little guy has opted for leaving his clothes on and seeing its in the shade has his brolly down,
I have brought the thermometer in the air conditioned room so as soon as its settled will take a photo of it indoors,
,
35 mins it took to settle down to room temperature  38
