This chapter discusses Edward William Lane's expedition of the Nile river on March 1826 with Osman Effendi's unfailing assistance. For this trip, Lane hired a boat to reach Second Cataract in Nubia from Nile. Lane tended to travel light but made sure of the safety of the basics like plentiful water jugs and supplies of bread and meat. There were different itineraries which made Lane see and examine differences among places. The stop every night on the Nile voyage helped them to have the relished supper beside the river. Furthermore, Lane's mode of operation for the voyage downriver was also altered and sharpened his focus.
