I was doing a bit of fantasy-style exploring the other
day looking for someplace cheap to stay in or near Karnak,
Egypt, when I ran across the above handy mini phrase
guide on a travel site.

I had to laugh that in the "Useful Words" section of the
phrase guide there were only three words — "camel," "boat,"
and "air conditioning."

Yeah, that's Egypt all right — the desert, the Nile, and
the heat.
