north africa

T oday we are heading now to North Africa,a land of vast deserts,acient cities,and burstling markets.Here, the cultures of Africa, the Middle East all come together. This is the place where you can find the best of many worlds.

North Africa, the land stretching from the southern tip of Sudan, up along the Red Sea and across the Southern Mediterranean coast to Morocco, and Western Sahara on the Pacific. It can sometimes be a tumultuous(动乱的) place. So before heading off, check the state department's website for any travel warnings and advisories.

In a class all its own is Egypt. the pyramids of Giza were the largest buildings on earth, and they remain an inspiration to as many as 5,000 visitors every day.

Further south along the Nile River(尼罗河), sprawling ruins serve as reminders of the grandeur of the Pharaohs(法老). And some of the sites at the top of your must-see list-- Luxor, the capital of ancient Egypt .it’s one of the largest examples of religious architecture in the world.

And to the west of the river, the Valley of the Kings, where Egypt's Pharaohs were laid to rest for nearly 500 years. Many of their tombs are now open to the public.

Further south nearing Egypt's border with Sudan are the massive ruins at Abu Simbel. it's thought that the massive structures carved straight into mountainside were built here, at least in part, to impress and to intimidate ancient Egypt’s southern neighbors, the Nubians(努比亚人).

When you are ready for more modern sites and sounds, consider a trip to the town centers and bazaars(市场,集市)of North Africa's magical cities, Tunis(首都突尼斯) in Tunisia(突尼斯国), and Fes and Marrakech in Morocco. Here, you can bargain in the souks(市集) and stores for trinkets(小装饰品,小物件) and carpets. Haggling(讨价还价)is part business transaction. Win or lose, you gain a souvenir and a valuable cultural experience. In Marrakech(摩洛哥的马拉喀什), don't miss a cultural highlight, the Plaza of Djemaa el-Fna(德吉马广场). It's been show time here every day since the 11th century. With
