Daily life on the Nile is the essence of Egypt. From modern and developing cities to rural communities still hugging the river and the traditional methods to farming, fishing and life are still very visible. Often we can only detect hints of modern life in villages from the evidence of satellite dishes and electricity wire.
Away from the larger and more
industrialised cities the pace of life is still tied to the Nile. Fishing is a
common occupation and the Nile is rich with fish. Animals and children still use
the Nile bathing, and it is a highway for tourists and trade.
