Description

A crazy travel tale of a spiritual seeker on a quest to find magic and enlightenment in Egypt. His journey brings him to a freakish overnight stay in the Pyramids, where he encounters spirits good and evil, and a contemplation of the Sphinx and other ancient mysteries. In Egypt he also meets magicians who can summon and control jinn, a snake charmer who makes him temporarily impervious to venom, Sufis who want nothing to do with all that, and an ageless man who alludes to being immortal.
