Nile Jewel

Over the past couple of years we've been left with disastrous images of Egypt, but as someone who's taken countless history of art classes I have images of beautiful lands along the delta of the Nile river.

The Nile is the longest river in the world and crosses Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Congo, Kenya, Eritrea, South Sudan, Sudan and of course Egypt. Most of these countries major cities are located along the course of the river as it it sthe main artery for most of these countries.

Boat sailing along the Nile are called feluccas and they take you on a trip to discover the most amazing sites up this famous river. It is one of those river that flows north as it is born with the Blue and White Nile in the south to end at the Mediterranean.

As the river cuts nothern Africa you can find fertile valleys, lakes and majestic waterfalls that make the river even more spectacular. I belive that despite all the turmoil these people are going through, we should recue all the beauty they have to offer and value the long history that lies along its long 4,000 mile stretch.

Have a lovely day!
