Tour Egypt presents the Siwa Oasis in Egypt

Tour Egypt presents the Siwa Oasis in Egypt: "With a population of about 23,000, Siwa, the most inaccessible of all Egypt's oasis until very recently, is also one of the most fascinating, lying some 60 feed below sea level.. On the edge of the Great Sand Sea, its rich history includes a visit from Alexander the Great to consult the Oracle of Amun in 331 BC. Archaeologists, such as Liana Souvaltsis and implied that the great military leader was burried here, but no real evidence has come from this. The King of Persia lead a 50,000 man army to the area to distroy the oracle, but the entire army was lost in the desert."

Food for Thought London Restaurant Information, 31 Neal Street, Covent Garden

Food for Thought London Restaurant Information, 31 Neal Street, Covent Garden: "Established in 1974, this ever popular and innovative vegetarian restaurant and takeaway offers outstanding value from its freshly-prepared, daily-changing A La Carte menu with vegan and wheat-free options. Three-course meals cost under 10 pounds and there is no corkage charge for BYO's. Seating is cramped and at peak times you may have to queue on the narrow stairs and be prepared to share tables, but portions are generous. The basement restaurant is air-conditioned and operates a no-smoking policy throughout."
