Carpe Diem #797 Lake Nasser

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

This will be a short episode, because we have our grandchildren to sleep over and they are asking my time too. Today we are entering Sudan by sailing over Lake Nasser. Lake Nasser is a vast reservoir in southern Egypt and northern Sudan. It is one of the largest man-made lakes in the world. Strictly, "Lake Nasser" refers only to the much larger portion of the lake that is in Egyptian territory (83% of the total), with the Sudanese preferring to call their smaller body of water Lake Nubia. The area of Sudan-administered Wadi Halfa Salient was largely flooded by Lake Nasser.

As we are on our way to the source of The Nile we are leaving Egypt and will be entering Sudan.

I hope this short episode will inspire you.

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until August 18th at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our next episode, Sudan, later on.
