What Was The Idiot Up To Just Before His Final Meeting With The Oracle In Siwa, Egypt?

The Idiot continued to explore Egypt’s Siwa Oasis in the country’s remote Western Desert prior to his last consultation with the Oracle of Amun.

Before he entered the Temple of the Oracle to be given some final advice and a number of tasks concerning Alexander the Great, he took a tuk-tuk to check in with Cleopatra, found an old toilet, climbed a few mountains, floated in a salt lake, experienced Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique and discovered a not-too attractive part of the Berber-populated, below-sea-level town that’s frequently called Bali in the Desert.
