The monastery of St. Tawdros on the West bank in Luxor.

On the day we went to St. Tawdros they were holding their Sunday school, lots of children all signing together. Families milling around the grounds and in the buildings. It certainly gave you the impression it was well used by the community. I could tell that the Mother Superior was very concerned about the water supply & toilet arrangements for all the families who used their church for their activities. The nuns were most hospitable to all strangers but they are most shy of having their photograph taken.
