Hello! I live in Egypt, it is a beautiful country situated in the south-east of the Mediterranean Sea and in the north-east corner of Africa.
This country is famous for its monuments, its pyramids, the Valley of the Kings, the great Sphinx, the museums, the mummies, etc.
When we refer to the big sea we call it Mediterranean, like in Spain.
The neighbours of Egypt are Sudan, situated in the south of the country, Libya, in the west, and Israel, in the north-east, in the east there is the Red Sea.
The total extension is 1 million km² approximately; it is one of the biggest countries in Africa.

Cairo is the Capital City, it is the biggest city in Africa. It is situated near the river Nile. The 20% of the population in Egypt lives in the metropolitan area of this city.
In 2006 the total population was 78.887.000 inhabitants. So, it has 75 hab/km².
The official currency is the Egyptian pound, but you also can use piasters
The official language is the Arabic, and the second language is English. But you can easily find people who speak Spanish in shops and markets.

Egypt is a republic; its president is Hosni Mubarak, who is the head of state.
This country forms part of the ONU, the DUDH, the Kyoto’s Protocol and others.
The migrant rate is -0’21/1.000.
Girls who were born in 2008 have a life expectancy of 74 years, and for boys it is 69 years.
Most people who live here belong to a lower social class, but there are some rich people too. In general the quality of life is not the same in the different parts of the country.
For each 100 habitants in Egypt 10 are unemployed, it is a high figure compared with other countries.

In 2005 the PIB was 302.803 millions dollars and in 2007 was 431.900. Egypt possesses one of the most developed economies in the Middle East, its economy is improving every year. Its IDH was 0,708 in 2005, it occupied the number 112 in the world.
The pollution in Egypt is very big, I’m afraid, specially suspended dust (air pollution) in Cairo, which causes many breathing problems and lung cancer. Fertilizers and pesticides are also big polluting agents.
But many people visit us. Tourism industry is very important for my country. Who doesn’t want to see wonders of the world, such as the pyramids, Karnack temple, etc?

Another important thing is that 90% of the population are Muslims and there is a minority of Christian people.
In the city of El Cairo and southern Egypt days are very hot and cold nights with high humidity, but in the north the climate is the typical Mediterranean.

That’s all of my country!
