Learn history like you never have before. Who would have thought that so many kings were called Ramesses? And the century before that the only ever female pharaoh faced up to the men of her time by ruling for 20 years. Cruising on the Nile brakes up the history lessons perfectly, and the markets, All those beautiful colours,all that shopping, Paradise. If you can’t get to the market the market comes to you while you are sipping your evening eat on the cruise boat deck only to be interrupted by locals on their own little boats selling you linen and table cloths. They just put it in a plastic bag and throw it up to you! Buy it or throw it back. That’s what is called a salesman.
