Page 182. " Like Cairo in Egypt, in the Nile delta "

Cairo is the capital of Egypt and the largest city in Africa.  It was founded in the 10th Century by the Fatimid Dynasty, but the area has long been a site of national capitals, the remnants of which can still be seen in Old Cairo.

 

 

The Nile delta has been farmed for thousands of years. It is home to all sorts of wildlife, including a large number of water birds.
