Today was a lost day. We had planned to drive to Kharga from Asyut, but I was ill all night with an attack of Dysentery. I haven’t had this for a few years but everyone says that once you’ve had it, it will keep coming back. That will teach me not to take the eating and drinking advice I give to everyone else! Sam went out during the day and got me some pills from the pharmacy. When I looked at the ingredients there were enough chemicals to stop an elephant in its tracks. And they worked brilliantly. I stayed in my room all day and mostly slept. The less said about this day the better.
