Egypt sex 18

Among the major geographical features of Egypt are the Nile River and the Suez Canal, which joins the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, and also separates Egypt proper from Sinai.The highest point is Mount Catherine in the Sinai, at 8,743 feet (2,665 meters). Rainfall is not adequate to sustain agriculture or a settled population, and water instead comes from the Nile.About 6 percent are Christians, who are indistinguishable in other respects from the Muslims.Most of the Christians belong to the Coptic Orthodox Church, the historic church of Egypt, but minorities within the minority are Catholic or Protestant, or derive from the churches of the Levant (Maronite, Greek Orthodox, Greek Catholic).

Before the construction of dams and barrages, floodwaters would spill out of the river's banks and, channeled by sluices and dikes, cover most of the agricultural land.The Nile rises far to the south of Egypt, in Ethiopia and in the drainage basin of Lake Victoria.It reaches Egypt in Lake Nasser, behind the Aswān High Dam.There are a few small linguistic minorities, of which the largest is the Nubians, who speak two Nubian languages (Kenuz and Mahas) related to the Nilo-Saharan languages of the Sudan.They represent less than 1 percent of Egypt's population, and are concentrated around Aswan.
