The BA 747 was yet another cause for bewilderment. Cramped seating, televisions that have no knobs – in the back of seats what’s more…..earphones, all needed to be got to grips with. A gin and tonic settled things down and we had an excellent flight with us both talking to extremely interesting new acquaintances. One an Egyptian business man and the other an ancient astrologist. The latter was my companion for the 4 ½ trip and he described to me the things that have only recently been discovered about nomadic tribes that existed in the Western Desert, West of Abu Simbel, until climate change 3-4,000 years ago which forced them to alter their way of living and head towards the Nile Delta.
