Why I chose this region

I chose this region first off because I have interest in the Sahara desert. I also take interest in the Nile River. I've studied Africa before but I've never really studied northern Africa that much. Now that I have, I'm glad I did because it's very interesting. I may decide to visit there one day in my future.
