EGYPT

Egypt doesn't have well-defined seasons. Between April and September it is very hot; usually above 35 °C during the day in Cairo and the Delta region, and rising to an average high of about 40 °C in Upper Egypt. October and November average between 25 and 30 °C. The winter period is cooler, with temperatures no higher than 18 or 20 °C in the daytime and down to 5 or 10 at night.

For thousands of years, monsoon rains in the mountains of Ethiopia caused the River Nile to flood and brought rich black silt into the desert. This made the Nile Valley the richest agricultural land in the world. The pharaohs of ancient Egypt took advantage of the regular floods and created a religious government with themselves as gods, who were said to control the rise and fall of the river. The pharaohs ruled for two thousand years, but the reliable harvest made Egypt the prize of occupying empires. During the third century bce, the pharaohs were overthrown by the Greeks, who in turn were toppled by the Romans. For the next two thousand years one occupying force followed another. Then, in 1952, a revolution re-established Egyptian rule over Egypt, and the country became a socialist democracy with an elected parliament and president.

MALTA

The Maltese landscape is mostly low and flat, with a few hills and many cliffs along the coastline. There are no mountains, lakes or rivers on the island, and its general appearance is bare and rocky. The coastline is rocky too; there are a few sandy beaches but most of them are pebble or shingle. Malta’s predominant colour is ochre, a pale-brownish yellow - this is due to the limestone rocks that dominate the island. Many of the houses are built of this local limestone. Because the island has such a high population density there is very little vegetation. The towns and villages around the capital, Valletta, and the nearby city of  Sliema have spread so much that they have converged.
