Ramesseum Café - Luxor

Kate, Alex and Cairo stop here frequently.

"So, Rose, how do you know where Quentin’s dig is?"
"I don’t know where it is, Kate, but I do know that every morning he has stopped at the Ramesseum Café for a glass of anise."
"What’s that?"
"It is the café which is beside the Ramesseum, the mortuary temple of Ramses II. They serve hot and cold drinks as well as food which you have to pay for. At Africa the food is always free for you."
The sarcasm in Rose’s voice was not lost on Kate as she knew exactly what she was getting at. Kate had yet again focussed on the wrong details. What did it matter what Quentin had to drink? It was what he was doing there, and where he was going from there which was important.
