The futuristic building is the new Burj al Fatah, financed by Col Gaddafi of Libya. Also here is the Blue Nile, near where it meets the White Nile. A month or so ago, I was at the source of the Blue Nile in Ethiopia, at Lake Tana. Now I am at its end, where it flows into the White Nile, and then continuing the flow on to Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea.
And not too long ago, I was also in Jinja, Uganda, at where Lake Victoria flows into the Albert Nile, which later becomes the White Nile that meets the Blue Nile at Khartoum. Last week, I visited Alexandria, Egypt, which is near the mouth of the Nile, where it meets the Mediterranean.
Wow - the picture is kind of complete now!
