...to visit the Citadel and Mosque. On the way we pass the City of the Dead. The Mosque is huge, and perched above the city affords views of the sprawling mass that is Cairo. We manage a lay-in the following morning as we have an afternoon flight back to Luxor. Our Hotel for the next four nights is to be Le Meridien.

  From now on pace slackens as the remaining time in Egypt is ours. Next day we go back to Luxor Temple for some drawing – then back to the Hotel to take it easy. The day after we take a Taxi to the Museum, followed by a Caléche ride around the shops and markets of Luxor, stopping now and then to stock up on souvenirs .
