Dear Advisor Partners,
Sometimes it seems the world has gone crazy, then, just when you think it’s about to go completely mad, the world catches itself and sanity returns. I write this as I sit on my balcony in Luxor, Egypt, a place I have been visiting since the age of 15.
Traveling with some amazing advisor partners and their guests, I’ve been reminded, the transformational power tourism possesses. Yesterday I visited the tomb of Nefertari, one I have always loved seeing. This was no ordinary visit. You see, I have been helping a dear friend’s husband walk around the sights and everyone thinks he’s my father, which I happily agree with. Well at this particular tomb, the officer was moved, he took me back down the stairs for a completely private visit of the tomb. This week’s video documents that visit. I’ve never felt more like Indiana Jones or more connected with the story of Egypt because the officer’s reason for my private visit was simple. They thought the person I was helping was my father and that I was a good son helping him. These officers wanted to show off this amazing tomb privately for me!
You’re likely wondering how things are in Egypt. I am happy to say the country is buzzing, with tourism booming! Getting in is simple, a PCR test within 72 hours (96 if coming across the ocean) and a QR code. If you have any issues getting the QR code, that can be solved with a simple link that will ensure an easy flight over, just reach out if you need it.
Please enjoy this week’s video.
