In the cold darkness you see the enormous balloons filling up and glowing, lit up from inside. Now, swing yourself in.
And slowly, you will rise. There’s silence all around. Gradually, the air fills with essential daylight, colourless and clean. You see the Nile below, and the green fields, and the vast desert in the distance. Then, a spark lights up above the horizon. It’s Ra, the sun-god, rising and flooding the Valley of the Kings with soft rose-gold light.
There’s no better vista in Egypt, soaring over the Sahara, along the West Bank of the River Nile, above the Valley of the Kings.
