Images of an Egypt that can never be hurt,that has stood the test of time, wars, revolutions, man and natures fury. and hopefully a sense of hope.
Seven Thousand Years of ups and downs.
In the last 13 months Egypt has been experiencing enormous upheaval, pain, change. Some say that maybe it is not for the better. But most would agree that Dictatorships and "police-states" are no place to live and thrive.
However through all the turmoil that is still ongoing, both political and economic, there still stand strong and true all the reminders of what an amazing country Egypt is, has been and can be again.
Because any peoples that have built, nurtured, invented and discovered all that the Egyptian people have, any country that has been through as many millenia of change as this wonderful country without a doubt deserves to rise again within the world sphere of both politics and economy and shine brightly.
All its people want to do is to be able to live, breath, and flourish again. To be themselves, to have a job to go to, to raise their families in an atmosphere of peace and prosperity.
And truly this huge country can provide all of that and indeed in the past has done so, very successfully.
So, from the Dynastic Pharoahs to the present day uncertainties I hope all peoples around the world wish Egypt well and help bring investment and work to those who need it and come to visit and see the wealth of history and incredible monuments that still stand despite everything that has happened there.
Temples, Tombs and of course Pyramids
The Mighty Nile
Egypt's lifeblood is the River Nile, it has bought trade, friends, foes and of course the rich deposits of sediment that make the Nile basin and all the lands that run along it so fertile.
In the past it would flood to the point of inundating the farmlands. But today because of the Aswan High Dam that no longer happens and there is no longer drought . The waters of this mighty river are controlled throughout Egypt and provide the same transport, fertile sediment and food that is has always done, but with out the catastrophes of the past. It also helps to produce Hydro-electric power and is this age when natural resources are running out that is a bonus .
