In early 2012, Anya and I went on a river cruise on the Nile.
We went as a part of an organised group.
It was the first time we had done so.
Normally we much preferred to travel on our own, as individuals, determining where we went and where we stayed. This is how we had travelled on a previous visit to Egypt.
But this time round, there was little choice in the matter.
Egypt was embroiled in a political crisis….
