Most of Egypt is a burning, sandy desert that stretches south and west into the vast wastes of the Sahara. The river Nile flows northwards from Sudan through the baking cliffs, depressions and sand-dunes of the Libyan Desert and the Arabian Desert. Its course is marked by a narrow green strip, the result of thousands of years of flooding and irrigation. To the north the Nile spills across a coastal plain, forming a broad, fertile delta. Ships from all over the world lie at anchor in the great port of Alexandria. This is the second largest city of Egypt, founded by Alexander the Great in 332 B.C. Its long waterfront and wide streets are cooled by sea breeze. Egypt has two other historic seaports. These are Suez, on the Red Sea coast, and Port Said, on the Mediterranean Sea. They are linked by the Suez Canal. The country's eastern border, across the wilderness of the Sinai Peninsula, is with Israel.
Nile is the lifeline of all Egypt's towns and cities, ancient and modern, Cairo, the capital city, is the largest in Africa. Thousands of people go there to trade, worship or study. It is a bustling, dusty city full of hooting taxis and hurrying crowds. In the shaded bazaars and cafes people meet to talk, play backgammon and drink sweet black coffee or tea. Modern hotels and office blocks rise up next to beautiful old mosques and basic housing where the poor people of the city live.
