I've not read about this elsewhere, no reason why I should have. However, no matter what else is lost in translation, I find that last paragraph very odd.

'He says his wife completes her journey naturally without cutting her off and visiting the tourist attractions very naturally.'

If your spouse had just committed suicide by throwing themselves off a boat into the Nile, would you really continue your cruise and site seeing? I can imagine if you were on a sea/ocean cruise, you may have to continue sailing until your ship docked somewhere, but on a river cruise surely not.

I can remember early one morning a rather obese balloon tourist fell in the Nile and drowned, he left a £600 Sheriton bar bill
and his wife, said 'he was hungover from the previous night.
She went back pretty quick, I don't think she wanted to come to Egypt with him anyway.

Funny co-incidence, a very demanding balloon passenger was striding along the boat pontoon ahead of his wife and adult sons when he suddenly fell into the water. The reaction of the apparently sleeping boatmen was incredible I think 4 of them were over the side of their boats and grabbed the chap keeping his head above water. He was pulled into a boat and a couple of tourists with medical experience tried to resuscitate him without success.

He was due to return to the UK with his family on the 11.00am flight. They didn't hesitate and left without looking back. In fact he hadn't drowned but was dead before he hit the water from a massive heart attack.

Not sure who the ex Office boy is, the only pilot without a university degree in this company has been the Boss's right hand man since he was a teenager = all of them are passionate about flying and have done about 5 years training before flying solo. Good lads, I'm proud of them, :up


Remember our first meeting Doctor? 20 years this year or 21 ago. Thank you for being a friend.

It's been right busy in our village for 2 days now.
Row upon row of villagers carrying trays of food, from the main village down across the small canal to our big canal,
the Fedliya, where our 'house of the dead is located, think village hall, weddings ect.
Any-how upon investigation, it was an 80 year old well regarded lady, she had 10 feddan (1 acre and half approx)
and had visited Mecca 5 times. She was a Rabatt our village has two tribes.
Information supplied: by our Omda Sabra, stopping off for a quick & surreptitious beer.
He said 'he hadn't stopped for 2 days and it's sugar-cane harvest in 2 days time.
I would hate to live in Ramla, no natural life!..just moaners,
Oh! and cruise boats and hassle and 'no bar plus lots of white people and 'nutters....... 8)
