It also helps that most of the Egyptians (for most of that trip up the
Nile) were treating him with respect and not as a slave.

I was going to make a similar comment myself.  I'll have to re-read
the book before I have anything substantial to say about it, but one
thing that stuck out for me is that I enjoyed seeing Latro so happy on
his journey up the Nile.  I guess I really like the character.
