We spent most of the day in slow motion, resting  up ready for the felucca trip. Linda, Peter, Stephanie and I spent all afternoon lounging in opulent luxury at the New Cataract hotel’s pool, a privilege we paid E£10-50 each for but worth every piastre1.  We watched another sunset pass on the Nile then wandered down to a restaurant on the corniche for tea, then back to our respective hotels for an early night.
