Image Caption: City lights define the Nile River Valley as it snakes across the Egyptian desert. The cities of Naj' Hamadi, Qena, and Luxor, shine the brightest. Communities in the hillsides create a thin border along either side of the valley. Similar strips line the Nile itself. Most of Egypt's population, and most of the country's arable land, occupies the Nile River Valley.
