This is a good travel article by Carl Hoffman who has recently visited Luxor and Aswan.  I have spoken with other travellers who have recently visited Upper Egypt and it is a fantastic time to visit - rather than a scrum inside the tombs of the Valley of the Kings they are peaceful and can be contemplated without being jostled and hurried.

OMG these people need our help more than ever. Tourists need to get back there. I can't imagine Luxor and Aswan without tourists. How are the people managing to eat? What can we do to help. I am so worried about the tour guide we had last June - he has a wife and two little boys. I would love to know if he is ok but have no way of finding out.The situation sounds quite desperate.
