I’ve been in De Nile

We have put out toes in the source of the Nile (both Blue and White) looked at the confluence of both at Khartoum ( in the Sudan), taken a ferry trip along it’s dammed lake (Nasser) from Wadi Halfa to Aswan and gone to where it discharges muddy, used and abused into the Mediterranean Sea at Rosetta in Egypt. We have seen it used as a waste disposal unit, toilet / bidet, bath, irrigation and drinking water supply for humans and animals
