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!


  1. I think it's so sad about everything going on there, such a place with such rich history and efforts given to the world. I've always loved Egypt and learning about their history, it's so interesting, I love it. I just hope all the fighting will stop one day. Happy Thursday doll xx

  2. Oh wow you found some great images. My friend went on a trip to Egypt and stayed on river boat that went down the Nile. It was for a writing group and was an awesome experience.

  3. Stunning images of one of Africa's natural wonders, I can recall doing an entire school project on the Nile, because I was so fascinated by it. I appreciate your visit hun! Happy Friday!

  4. I once was so in love with that place and had a special image of it quite like the one you give here in this post, something magical and mystery. Now it pains me what's happening in North Africa and middle east. The big political joke! Thank you for this this images and the pause from reality.

  5. wow, that last photo makes me want to go there right now! I have been wondering about what it would be like to visit Egypt since I was a child. Still considering it, though the Sphinx and pyramids are very very big marks in the pro column already, without considering everything else!

  6. I imagine a trip on the Nile to be somewhat similar. Hopefully, that kind of trip will be possible some day!
