with the flow'
riad I found was not in the city but on the Nile. It's a dahabiya,
a traditional, two-masted Nile sailing cruiser. Anywhere else it
would be called a yacht. King Farouk had several. So if a riad is
a small princely palace on land - now given over to holiday making
- a dahabiya is a riad on the river...'
panelled and with two faux-glass oil lamps swinging from the beams
- a perfect touch for a sailing ship - the look was of a colonial
club. Hercule Poirot could have popped up at any moment. There were
button-back leather sofa and chairs, an antique bookcase and Scrabble,
and tables where we ate when the weather was too chilly for the
deck. The food was outstandingly good...'
While the big ships charged by as if permanently late, the El Bey
moved at the same courtly pace as the Nile - slow enough to enable
us to smell woodsmoke from the villages and watch the kingfishers
hover. Under our isosceles sails we were as much a curiosity as
the boys laying fishing nets and the women doing laundry, the donkey
carts and buffalo. But it was the sight of some 40 huge cruise boats,
moored in ranks, cheek by gunwale up to 10 deep, at the pretty little
temple of Kom Ombo that made the greatest sense of dahabiya travel.
The dahabiyas don't take you to sites different from the norm, but
they do take you in irresistibly different style...'
greatest compliment to the El Bey was that, for all the wonders
of ancient Egypt, shown to us by our own guide, the part of the
week my fellow passengers enjoyed most was the time on the river...'
