Andie has links to more articles critical of the "restoration" of the Avenue Sphinxes in Luxor which seems to come with a very high price in terms of the other cultural mouments which are being sacrificed.  On top of this, residents are protesting the creation of a new port in Luxor which would displace 10,000 people.  Those who follow such things will recognise a familiar pattern from the complaints against heavy-handed and insenstive re-development in Cairo.
