Intrepid Journeys - Egypt (Marcus Lush)

Television (Excerpts) – 2003

PG
Parental Guidance

Before he went Off the Rails Marcus Lush went off the beaten track to Egypt. He takes on a camel and donkey, drifts down The Nile aboard a felucca, samples the local fast food and deals with a dose of ‘Nile Belly'. Ancient treasures and stunning desert landscapes don't hide a more problematic recent history. But the warmth of the locals - Muslim or Christian - makes Lush a convert. When Lush tries the local Cairo barber he loses some eyelashes ("when in Rome") but nevertheless finds the whole Egypt experience to be an "eye opener."

The market is chaotic and the business is eclectic. Everyone wants to chat and offer me coffee.
– Marcus Lush
