The slanting light of very early morning danced across the water of the Nile, cutting through the last of the predawn fog. An ibis took flight, white wings spreading. A fish jumped.
On a dock by the riverside, shaded by a grove of date palms, a man in what appeared to be a pair of white linen boxer shorts cast a line into the river and lazily began to reel it in. Colonel Jack O’Neill, USAF retired (very retired) picked up the clay cup at his elbow and took a sip through the straw, reflecting that he was never going to get entirely used to beer for breakfast.
