When I think of Agatha Christie, I definitely think of her on the Nile. But did you know that when she visited Egypt as a kid she hated it? I had no idea either. One of our favorite LT writers, Veronica Hackethal, takes our readers on a journey down the Nile on a fabulous, five star cruise. You will see how to experience Egypt in style, feeling the luxury and decadence of Agatha Christie’s time spent there.
Hackethal shows us how oppressive the desert can be, yet how spectacular the pyramids really are. As she says in her article, “everyone handles the desert differently.” With these observations, our readers understand how Agatha Christie felt when she toured Egypt both as a child and as an adult.
I’ve personally never been to Egypt, but friends of mine have gone and raved about the experience. Agatha Christie’s connection to the Nile just makes the trip more desirable to me. Thus, I hope one day I’ll be writing about cruising down the Nile in a five star ship, dreaming of Hercule Poirot, murder mysteries, sordid affairs. It sounds like a perfect, literary trip to me.
Enjoy our latest article, Death & Life on the Nile, Agatha Christie’s Egypt.
