Nothin’ like a 110 degree Luxor street party with blaring Nubian tunes, children in fisticuffs, and a bouncy castle.

This is what you had to do if you wanted to say something to someone, literally scream into their ear. That’s how loud the subwoofers were.

It’s too bad I was super ill when I shot this and we couldn’t stick around for the future bride and groom to show up. The heat was something I had never experienced before. In those Luxor backstreets the wind does not blow. But that doesn’t stop the parties. Engagement/wedding parties usually start around 10pm or later and run late into the night. We waited for hours for the bride and groom to show, and never got to see them.
