Watching current events with Justice…

While watching all the protest coverage in Egypt we were discussing the geography and looking at maps of course. Middle East, Africa, Egypt and then local maps of Tahir Square in Cairo which happens to be very close to the Nile and while some of the maps labels are in Arabic and others in English, Justice picked up on what we were looking at instantly!

Justice: Egypt is in Africa right?

Me: yes

Justice: Oh Egypt has the Nile River and that’s one of the longest rivers in the world!  (we were looking at a zoomed in map of Cairo)

Me: Yes!

He loves his maps and knows a bit about geography and his curiosity grows all the time!
