Visiting the High Dam

Russian Monument to the Grand Dam Photo, Egypt, Africa

Visiting High Dam
We’re greeted to this rather drab area by a modern monument, which was built as a tribute to the joint effort in building the dam by the Egyptians and Russians. It looks out of place in this land of world-renowned ancient temples and monuments.

We learn there is an older dam here as well called Aswan Dam. As we travel we see many abandoned houses that were made uninhabitable by by the floods resulting from the High Dam.
The people that lived here were the Nubians. They migrated here from Sudan.
