    Default A Houseboat in Egypt, With Decor From All Over


    Shawn Baldwin for the New York Times
    Michel Pastore’s houseboat, bought six years ago, is stationary (it has no engine). The living room is open to the elements, but the kitchen, bedrooms and den have air-conditioning.

    Odd and funky. I like this a lot.

    I love what looks like the use of local linens. It looks really personalized.

    It'd be great for a weekend (or week-long) getaway but yeah, not for full time living. I don't like the prison gray bathroom at all.
