Image Caption: Cairo, Egypt
Cairo is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. The city is moving outside
the dark-colored Nile valley into the surrounding desert. New developments are
side by side with ancient monuments. The pyramids at Giza are highlighted by
their shadows and the new development in the desert to the South is outlined by
lighter-colored roads. Further south of the Giza pyramids on the west side of the
Nile River are the Step and Bent Pyramids, respectively.
