Sohag: It's not what you think
Writing for Al Ahram Weekly, Serene Assir describes a trip to Sohag: "Not an area to be visited by lazy tourists who seek all sites to be laid out for them on a silver tray, ready for them to take their quick snapshots and run off back to their luxury hotel, Sohag is, by contrast, a crucial spot for any traveller to visit if in search of a true understanding of modern and ancient Egypt, and of how the two continue to interact". Included in her account are details of several sites in Sohag including those at Akhmim and Abydos. Click on the photograph on the page to see more photographs.
