>How was the food?
Wonderful. By the second day we were experimenting with the red, delicious tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, figs, summer squash, dates, onions, chick peas, melons, limes, green peppers, grapefruit.(our Egyptian guide checked the kitchen and said OK). Soon, we were all as acclimated as we were going to be. My usual breakfast was fresh fruit, yogurt, honey, and a warm-from-the-oven croissant or Egyptian bread.
