Nicholas Sarkozy views our Goubli flats, Luxor, Egypt

Yes he did, really. Well he jogged past them and must have seen them and if you had been on this balcony you would have seen him.

Tony Blair is in Luxor now, perhaps he will visit as well. :)

Christmas Dinner Menu 2007

Every year I have been here I have invited the guests that were staying to Christmas Dinner. Although not everyone came numbers were on the rise, last year it was 12 and what with that and it being our busiest time of year it was gettign a bit much. So this year I have gone for something different.

There is a new Italian restaurant opened in Luxor called Benz and the chef Ben Wilson makes wonderful food. I challenged him to do us Christmas Dinner and so this what is on offer to my guests this year, pretty cool
