The Read Sea area from biblical prophecy where Moses led exodus across the marshes of the Nile delta.

All this land has been irrigated now.

Here is a picture of Bedouin herders in the Read sea area. The land here is in stark contrast to the deserts of the Sinai region.

This made for the most interesting drive so far on my journey. Here are some photo’s with fixes.

There were many of these water-wheels interspersed with deeper canals which criss-crossed the landscape. The water-wheels were used to drag water from the deeper channels onto the reclaimed land.

Bedouins exist in the desert. This is the first time I’ve seen them on the plains.
