Dr Ophelia had the date with the soldier and it was nice. She kissed him on the cheek.
The next day we decide to El Wasta. It is a couple of hours up the Nile (South).
We drive into the market. We are being targeted by local vendors who see chumps driving in. We continue driving through and then park.
We ask a local vendor where to find Nyiti.
When we arrive we are met by a young man missing his right arm, right shoulder and right side of his face. These missing parts of his body appear to have been gouged out. Looks like a shark attack. He is gardening.
The man speaks very slowly. He’s been damaged badly. When we ask where Nyiti is, he says she’s his mother. He gets defensive about her. He leads us in.
The house he takes us to is dark and shadowy. Dirty and old.
Nyiti’s hands and jaw have been burned away. These are old wounds. She sits rocking to herself. As she sees us she sparks up. As part of her greeting she just makes gurgling noises. She points to the corner. There is a bundle in the corner which she appears to want us to see.
Forthright checks Archeology
It is a rush basket with a red symbol of protection. Within the basket is a 7×9” slab of white stone. Irregular edges indicate it was broken from a large stone. The incisions are centuries old. It is from a pyramid. As the stone is revealed to the sun, it is revealed to be pink. (Red Pyramid at Dashur).
As we take the stone she relaxes and loses interest in us. She has passed the baton on, so to speak.
There is a pattern on the stone that indicates that it is part of a grander design. There is part of an Ankh and other cartouches.
We went to the pyramids. There were carvings and stuff. May match the stone we got.
We looked to see if the stone could match. We find nothing.
