Foreign Correspondents Take a Railroad Trip Across Egypt
Eighty-eight Cairo-based members of the foreign media correspondents' association took a railroad trip starting at "Kharga" Oasis and terminating at Port Safaga in the Red Sea. This trip was the first to link the Desert to the Red Sea, and included visits to Pharaonic and Coptic sites in El Kharga, Qena, Luxor and Eastern mountains of the Red Sea.
