  1. Fascinating old photographs, and, like Wendy, it was the Luxor one which was particularly striking, as I always think of that being such a dry region. Is it close to the river?


  2. La Nightingail says:

    Regions don’t have to be anywhere near a river or waterway to flood. Several inches of rain allofaonce – as my Grandma Louise used to say – can inundate an area without any other water source – especially if the area is flat and the earth is hard from constant heat and dryness so can’t easily absorb the water coming so fast.
