At lot has been written since local police pounced on a planned attack at Karnak Temple on Wednesday.
Much of it revolves around the big question: is it safe to visit Egypt right now?
The best comment I've seen comes from Anthony Basco:
"Everyone who wants to come to Egypt and especially Luxor, please do!
I know it looks frightening and scary with sensationalist headlines and pictures, but if an atrocity happens in London, or Paris, or any place in the Western world, people are not told to keep away.
I have lived here in Luxor for six months and can tell you that I have never once felt at risk or afraid. The people here are friendly and warm and will go to any lengths to make sure you have the best time.
Luxor is a beautiful and fascinating city, and it's really a disservice to yourself not to experience it."
The day after the failed attack, visitors were proudly posting photos of themselves at Karnak Temple to declare their refusal to let the bad guys win.
Faris Sami wondered "... Why no one focuses on how the Egyptian tourist destinations are well protected by security forces, and how the attack was foiled by police after two assailants were killed and the third was injured and arrested? The title is just "Suicide attack at Karnak"!
It has also been suggested that if you were considering visiting Egypt sometime, then now is the perfect time; the security will be amazing.
Personally, I would be in Luxor in a heartbeat. My mother would probably worry, but then that's what mums do, right?
