  Old Cataract Hotel
by sandysmith

Spend some time shopping in the bazzars of Aswan - haggle for a bargain. Then treat yourself to morning coffee or afternoon tea (better still evening cocktails!)on the verandah of The Old Cat ( the affectionate name for the Old Cataract Hotel), overlooking so tranquil a scene - the only action coming from the wind blown sail of the occasional felucca. If you tip the room steward he might show you the room where Agatha Christie stayed.
