Banks of the Nile

So where I am currently live, Cairo, is a desert. There is sand everywhere, and even the air itself feels dusty. Okay, that could be the smog, which is so thick somedays I can start smelling it inside the apartment as I walk from the bedroom towards the balcony doors in the living room. So you can imagine my surprise when I first saw the Nile after about 2 weeks of being here. I'm not sure what I was expecting...I think my brain had somehow decided the desert would go right up to the river. Of course that is not the case; along the Nile bank is such lush greenery that my eyes, now unused to seeing that colour, nearly bugged out of my head at the beauty.
