We are impressed by Egypt and like to return one day!
We decided to travel alone on the paths of Agatha Christie's book "Death on
the Nile". We stayed in the same hotels as she did, visited the pyramids, the
valley of the kings and the Abu Simbel temple, we travelled by train and horse
carriages, enjoyed dinner on the steamboat "Sudan" and spent most beautiful time
at the regular High Tea in the Old Cataract Hotel in Aswan.
