If you’re looking for a enthralling escape, look no further than the little Belgian Detective, Hercule Poirot, whose little gray cells keep us on our toes as he solves even the toughest murder mystery! I’m an avid fan (I’ve watched every single one of the 70 episodes!) of the series based off the books written by the prolific author, Agatha Christie. To this day I am in awe of her ability to create a plot so twisted while simultaneously creating the greatest sense of mystery and adventure. I doubt it will come to a surprise to any fellow fans that one of my absolute favorite episodes is Death on the Nile. And why shouldn’t it be, right?! Even if it is a bit cliché!
Who among us wouldn’t love to dash off the the the little suqs of 1930’s Cairo, listening to shouts of “Salam walikum! and “Shukran!” I’d do just about anything to hop on a Nile Cruise, dressed in a white linen suit, the obvious choice for such an occasion as this! I’d wear a little pair of ballet flats that almost seem to wind and twist like the bandages of a mummy and leave a red lipstick stain on my glass of Karkade ( the national tea of Egypt).
For my fellow Poirot enthusiasts, you will need no more nudging to run and join me in a screening of Death on the Nile, but if you haven’t watched it I highly recommend checking out David Suchet’s version available on amazon prime. It’s episode 3 of season 9 and it’s pure magic!
