A Smoker On The Nile

Posted: Apr 13, 2007 4:27pm ET
Day One of my trip to Egypt to cruise the Nile, tour guide informs our group:

''You've probably noticed that people smoke everywhere here. We'll try to shield you from that, but bear in mind that you're only a group of 50 nonsmokers surrounded by 70 million smokers.''

Hee, hee, hee. Little does she know. Make that 49 nonsmokers.

Also they don't actually smoke everywhere. Museums and mosques are off limits. Haven't visited a pyramid yet. Will report on that situation.

Bad new is the wine's pretty bad and no brown water so far.

But good beer.
