No tourist gifts in the Egyptian Souk.
Much to her surprise, Kate had actually enjoyed her time with Babs. They had shared a few laughs as they toured the souks of Luxor, where Babs had haggled well whilst buying her presents. Now sitting in the air-conditioned lounge of some modern nondescript hotel drinking ice-cold tamar-hindi, Kate reviewed her photos of the morning. Though the monitor on her camera was small, she could not make out anyone who may have been following her.
Now was the time to go out on her own. Alex had said she should go off without saying anything, just disappear into the crowd. Kate felt so guilty. She could not do that to Babs.
