I see they unveiled another statue at Luxor this Tuesday - since you were there or did they just cover it up for the "unveiling"??http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/04/19/egypt-unveils-massive-granite -statue-ramse s-ii/
I'm afraid I may have missed it (so many large statues), but I heard from other people on the dahabiya that I am at right now that they saw it before they temporarily put a veil over it. I was in Luxor Temple on Saturday.
P.S.: I think it was covered after all when I was there, I think it is hidden under the white sheet to the right on the photo that I took Saturday. See https://www.flickr.com/photos/32282344@N08/33330668003/in/dateposted/
