People Have the Right to See the Sea

Alexandria

Don’t we all love taking a trip with your family to go visit the beautiful land of Alexandria? Or maybe even go on a quick road trip with your friends to enjoy some tasty ice cream cones and have dinner at Balbaa?

The city of Alexandria is one of the things we Egyptians cherish the most. It’s a beautiful place to live in and tourists travel the world to spend one precious day by the beautiful sea. With time, the city has slowly been decaying because of the harsh weather and because of the people mistreating the streets and areas. Which is why Alexandria needs this chance to become a better cleaner city and come back even stronger than it ever was before!

You’d be excited to hear that there are new plans set in store to take place in 2030 that promises a newer and better Alexandria. As much as it is a marvelous city, slum areas are the main reason why people get uncomfortable in Alexandria. Which is why Alexandria is saying au revoir to slum areas!

There are around 7 slum areas in the heart of Alexandria, imagine a world where all these areas are reconstructed and modernized? The governorate is promised to be transformed along the coming years to truly be a major touristic attraction hence promoting for tourism.

Due to there having been several conflicts over construction violations years before 2011, the Alexandrian Governor Mohamed El Sherief stressed on adjusting legal positions as well as respecting the laws and regulations given to them.

On a brighter note, it was said during the governor’s interview with Extra Nile Satellite that a part of the plan to renovate and enhance Alexandria is to develop electrical and sanitation services as well as planting more trees, properly paving the streets and even installing street lights. We all know how much Alexandria is in need of this change!

The campaign has already commenced since December by removing barrier blocks that are haphazardly scattered along the infamous corniche.

License renewal as new laws will be set in motion to preserve the view which is the main reason people visit Alexandria.

We’re all looking forward to a better cleaner city to grow and evolve in only a matter of 10 years. The wait may seem long but I promise you this, time flies and the wait is worth it! The motive behind this entire move is that people have the right to see the sea, and with that said, let the change commence!

Ramses II

For the time being, Egypt has been working on several new campaigns as well as initiatives to make our country a stronger and better place. The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities is currently in the process of completing the restoration of Ramses II statue that is located on the West side of the Luxor Temple.

This was to be a great achievement for the Egyptian citizens but unfortunately for us, in light of the coronavirus pandemic, things were forced to change directions. At first, the initial date of the opening was to be on April 18th, but throughout the process, people wondered whether or not the virus will take a toll on this.

The statue is around 7 meters high and weigh 65 tons which is pretty huge, which is why people were quite excited for the opening. Besides that, Egyptology is an amazing thing to marvel at as well as study, our land has a rich cultural background s well as history.

Ahmed Orabi, the Director of the Luxor Temple at the Ministry of Antiquities, has recently told the press that the assembly as well as restoration of Ramses the second is almost finished but has warned people prior that the date may be postponed due to the health catastrophe that is currently going on.

.“We are continuing with the restoration work that is 99 percent complete, to prepare the statue for the opening date that was initially set on April 18, or the new date, depending on the sudden change in plans,” stated Orabi.

Orabi has also explained that the method used to restore are of the most recent scientific methods. He also added that both Karnak and Luxor temples had undergone several changes as well to commence greeting visitors with pride.

Believe it or not, they have started working on Ramses II in September 2019 after Khaled el Anani, the Minister of Tourism and Antiquities, has decided to fully support the Egyptian archealogical mission that is led by Mostafa Waziri, the Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.

The Egyptian citizens will just have to wait patiently until the health crisis simmers down a bit and makes it safer for people to come visit.
