30 year old Aladin Ahmet runs a souvenir stall in the Red Sea resort of Hurghada. He favours the decision to leave Qurna behind and move to modern houses, because he believes the community has to move on and modernise itself. Qurna is located a few miles outside Luxor and is built in the Valley of the Nobles, a major archeological site. The Egyptian authorities are demolishing Qurna and moving its inhabitants to nearby New Qurna to make way for more tourist friendly developments.
