Here comes the Flood!

The Nile is very important to Egypt. The Nile and the Nile delta make up a total of close to 3% of Egypt's area. Within this area is all farm land. The annual flood is very important to the Egypt's not just for water and good farm land but for survival. If the flood did not come there would be a breakout of famine. That's why the Nile is so important.

  1. Oh my gosh, I can't believe that they actually LIKED the flood! Most people hate and fear floods... But I guess they were pretty strange people...
