“The Nile River is commonly regarded as the longest river in the world, flowing for 4,258 miles (6,853 km) over 11 countries in northeastern Africa. In this Overview, it is shown flowing north through Egypt, forming a large delta before emptying into the Mediterranean Sea. Civilizations since ancient times have depended on the waters of the Nile to flood and fertilize the surrounding desert lands.”

Hey, it's okay! I'M dated, too!

Bill_I_Am

You're welcome, stunned. And if you get a chance, do visit Egypt!

Loved this post and was great listening to all the travels from you all, I will definitely read more into the Nile River. Thanks for this wonderful post.

Bill_I_Am

Wiktionary says your spelling is dated. :-P

ElvisBanana

I see that you spell "gingko" in the more widely used form of "ginkgo". That's not surprising, but I'll tell you why I use gingko. First, many Japanese words, especially girls' names, end in -ko. Secondly, I actually have a cousin named Gingko, so I like to honor her.

Cool that it's a word that takes either spelling!

Bill_I_Am

Elvis, you're welcome, and yes, it sure does look like a ginkgo leaf!

Bill_I_Am

'Welcome, Pat.

ElvisBanana

Thanks, Bill! That Nile Delta almost looks like a gingko leaf!

Thank you Gayle! Yes, it’s true that they do make great memories! :-)

patw

Thanks, Bill.

Bill_I_Am

I did, and I just hung mementos from the trip on my wall the other day. You're welcome, Gayle!

Bommom

It sounds as though you two had grand times on your trips. They make for great memories. Thanks for the puzzle, Bill!

I never got to Alexandria, but I met some guys from there in a bar that hung on the side of the Nile in Luxor, and they took me to another bar at a Movenpick hotel deep in the palms. I had a blast!

It sure is a lovely and great experience, Bill. I knew that you traveled to Cairo but I didn’t know about your bus trip, it's wonderful that you did that, Luxor is one of the places where I went too and several others. I will never forget that trip, but I have to admit that I forgot some of the names. While in Cairo I went by train to Alexandria, that was wonderful! Sightseeing in a felucca must have been so great. Thank you Bill for sharing all of this, I love it!

Bill_I_Am

I've heard that's a lovely experience, luly. I traveled from Cairo to Aswan by bus, stopping for several days in Luxor on the way. Then in Aswan, I got to do some sightseeing in a felucca, which was great fun. Finally, I traveled back to Cairo on a train, which was another fun experience, watching life along the Nile all the way. That was two weeks I will treasure forever!

I love the Nile River, with a group of people we stayed first in the city of Cairo, etc and then went on a Nile River cruise, I loved every minute of it!!

Thanks fort he update, will be waiting ;-)

Jim, I quite agree, as you can tell from my penchant for posting satellite photos every weekday. There may be a hiatus in that soon, however, as Daily Overview announced they are taking a break this month of uncertain length. There are other, similar views available, however, so I don't see them stopping entirely from me.

I'm glad you enjoy them, and you're welcome!

Bill_I_Am

Janet, that is a fascinating quest. And as I mentioned below, I feel it was a bit of a shame that the dam was built, because the annual floods don't fertilize the fields anymore—a great loss in my opinion.

And yes, that is a fascinating website. I could spend the afternoon there if I weren't at work. :-/ Thanks!

Bill_I_Am

Prima, the Nile River is magnificent.

Bill_I_Am

It really is a wonder, mereagle, though it doesn't feed the people as well as it did before the Aswan High Dam was built.

eagleboi

Satellite photography is always so revealing and beautiful, a picture of our planes not available to uas usually. TFS Bill. Keep safe.

Oputz

As always, Thanks Bill!
This photo got my antennae aquiver about the source of the Nile

(btw an altogether interesting web site...)

The Mike River is very important and wonderful.

Very beautiful puzzle, like a flower blooming, feeding all the people.
