Egypt Geology, Food, and Culture

Egypt is a country in Africa which is mostly a desert. It has the longest river in the world, the Nile River, which supposedly floods up every year.  It is separated into 2 lands, the Red lands and the Black lands. The red lands is a larger are than the Black lands, taking up most of the land in Egypt. The black lands are very small, taking up very small portions in Egypt. The Ancient Egyptians used to wear eye makeup to protect their eyes from sand. They have museums that show ancient drawings and artifacts.

Egypt is located in north-east Africa. Egyptians speak Modern Standard Arabic, and they have a Muslim religion. Modern day Egyptian clothing can range from females wearing hijabs, a cloth that covers the neck and head, or a niquab, a cloth that covers the face and head. Men usually wear a galabiya, a loose-fitting ankle length robe, and usually wears a turban, skullcap or fez to go with it.

Various foods are also accompanied with Egypt, such as Aish, a Egyptian pocket bread (google it) made of  wheat, flour and salt. There is also Kibda, which is fried liver or beef, Baklava, layers of flaky pastry filled with chopped nuts and honey syrup (sound delicious!), Umm Ali, which is layers of bread soaked in milk with raisins, and sometimes topped with nuts, Roz be Laban, rice pudding with vanilla, Kishk, cold yogurt sauce, and the list goes on. There are different foods of many, so there’s a different food for everyone. At restaurants, lunch is served within 1 to 4 p.m., while dinner is served through 8 p.m. to 12 am.




Hey everyone! Happy October, and Happy birthday to my sister (even tho that was 2 days ago)! See ya!
