This was our first visit to "Amoun Ra", Roshdy's latest shop in the Sharia Yousef Hassan. It is so new & modern, we were very impressed. Located opposite the Emilio hotel, it is in such a typical Egyptian street. In the past we had always been to the Ragi branch, on the road out to the airport. To find this branch you watch out as you come in on the bus from the airport, look out to the right, by the petrol station and you'll see the Ragi outlet. To find the location of both shops, check out the map.
Gold is the thing to buy in Egypt. It is so inexpensive & there is none of the 9 ct rubbish of Great Britain. Roshdy is so proud of his work, he can provide all your heart desires!To see examples of Roshdy's work, look here.
Many people have visited Roshdy's shop, here are a couple of comments written by other people:
Note from Jennie of Edinburgh
Amoun Ra is a new shop in Sharia
Yousef Hassan, opposite the Emilio Hotel. Ask for Roshdy, who will show you a
unique collection of gold & silver jewellery, most of which are based on ancient
designs. You will find lapis lazuli, coral, glass perfume bottles & traditional
mother-of-pearl boxes. This bazaar is an oasis of calm in the centre of Luxor.
