Mitten im Roten Meer, etwa auf der Höhe von Marsa Alam, findet sich einer der spektakulärsten Tauchplätze in Ägypten: Das Daedalus Riff. Wie die Brother Islands ist auch das Daedalus Riff nur mittels einer mehrtägigen Tauchsafari erreichbar, meist während einer Tour in Verbindung mit Brothers und Elphinstone. Wer hier abtaucht, ist oft nur in zweiter Linie an dem grandiosen Bewuchs oder allgemeinen Fischreichtum interessiert – er will das Rudel Hammerhaie sehen, welches sich recht standorttreu bei Daedalus aufhält und welches dem Riff zu seiner Popularität verholfen hat. f.f.

This panorama was taken in Middle East

This is an overview of Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.

The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.

Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!

When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.

Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.
