Egypt is the Nile. From ancient times to the building of the Aswan Dam, the unpredictable Nile shaped the country and its people. The yearly flooding led to the development of mathematical, astronomical, and engineering knowledge way in advance of other civilizations. Planning for the years when the harvest was poor led to the development of government and a system of laws. That Egypt has survived for 6000 years is due to the bounty of the Nile. Life along the Nile has changed little over the millennium.

The water of the Nile varies according to the weather. It is hot when it is hot and cold when it is cold.
