Transcript of Egypt
Egypt's climate and seasons are unlike the United States
because Egypt has only 2 seasons instead of 4. Their mild winter is in November- April, and their hot summer is in May-October. The temperature can get as high as 120 degrees, and only as low as 90 degrees.
Egypt exports oil and gas to other countries, and tourism still remains a key part in Egypt's economy. All values are in US dollars, but sometimes they use Egyptian pounds( 1 egyptian pound= 0.06 US dollars
Egypt’s government is a Democratic Republic because until 2005 there was never more than one candidate to vote for. They have 762 members in the legislative branch , but only 2% of Parliament seats are held by women. The president of Egypt is Abdelfattah Said Elsisi(61 years old).

Egypt was once ruled by kings
Egypt is split into two unequal, extremely arid regions by the landscapes dominate features. The landscape contains low mountains and deserts. Northern Egypt obtains wide valleys near the Nile and East and West Deserts. North of Cairo- Egypt's capital city- is the Nile river. The Nile river is the fertile land that is completely covered with farms. Without the Nile river Egypt would be a desert. The Nile river surprisingly flows south to north instead of flowing north to south.
Egypt’s history is very complicated.The first hunters and fishermen lived along the bank of the Nile- Egypt’s major delta system-over 8,000 years ago. The first people in Egypt learned to grow crops, raise animals, and build villages and towns. They traded with their neighbors, and the learned to sail boats. At 3,000 B.C.(before Christ) a civilization was established. After being unified under a powerful king, pyramids, temples, mountains, and other impressive monument were built. After being under control by the Romans, Muslims, and the British, Egypt had declared independence in 1952.
