The flying fish were doing cool stunts. They were able to travel a long way through the air. A couple of more days until I get to Egypt.

We stopped for a time at Al-Kasr, an old city from about 950AD, now pretty much abandoned. Lots of narrow little streets between mud brick walls, sand underfoot, an absolute warren. We were shown an ...
