Travel: Pharaoh's curse that started on the M1

The Observer (Kathryn Michaud)

Thanks to Tony Marson for forwarding this piece to me. It is a brief account of a bad experience of a holiday to Egypt. Sadly, the writer dwells exclusively on all the problems (delays on a UK motorway leading to a one day delay in arrival in Egypt where the hotel room had been cancelled as a result, and the illness of one of the sisters who were travelling together). It is impossible to get an idea of what their other experiences of Aswan, Luxor and Cairo actually were.
