As flights go, I've ...

holiday, a luxury most of us haven’t enjoyed since school, and I wave good bye
to the family, who’ve been staying for the past week.
First project of the holiday: Visa renewal. This involves
... we scooted up the street. I watched the town around us begin to wake up. People came out of their houses and a few vehicles began to appear on the street. We headed towards the Nile and in a few minutes had driven straight across it and onto the West Bank.
I couldn’t wait to see the West Bank. Luxor itself is split into the East Bank and the West Bank with the Nile River separating the two. The majority of the new village and most accommodation is on the East Bank as well ...
... of it. It is much easier for us both to speak in English”.
“Right” I said, a bit put out that my rudimentary Arabic phrases that I’d picked up wouldn't be useful at all in Morocco.
Moving across the quad we were stopped half a dozen times by groups of students who recognised Ahmed and shouted out before running over to give him enthusiastic handshake and man hugs. These encounters were slightly awkward for me as I ...
