Conclusion. Karin Muller visits Upper Egypt, where she observes a birthday party for Luxor's most famous saint; and meets a French archaeologist who's spent the past two years in Luxor. She also learns about Cairo's coffeehouse culture; and is in the city when the military overthrows the president. She hopes to avoid the unrest by traveling to the countryside, but the plan backfires: she's attacked by a mob in a remote village and must be transported to the U.S. for emergency surgery.
