Ciao,

Between late September through May,  the daytimes are pleasantly warm and offers the pleasant balmy weather that is perfect for cruising down the Nile.

Official language is Arabic, foreign languages, such as English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish are widely spoken.
Organic Foods 
Important crops included sesame, beans, chickpeas, lettuce, onions, garlic, dill, grapes, melons and gourds.  Sugar was unknown – honey was used as a sweetener by the rich, and poor people used dates and fruit juices.  It was difficult to raise livestock on the Egyptian deserts, meat was a luxury,  grilled fish was a specialty.
