August 2014 Where The Heck Is It?


Scenic view of the Hosni Mubarak National Forest near Edfu, protected refuge for endangered sand squirrels and ruby throated humming lizards.

The government sponsored school that teaches Egyptians the proper pronunciation of the word "Bakhshish" is located in the buildings seen in the middle distance.

Or do you have a different interpretation of this photograph? If so:

  1. What Egyptian city is located closest to this site?

  2. What is the name given to this locality in Arabic?

  3. What is the name given to this locality in English?

Bring your answers to the August ARCE meeting where you can win prizes by answering these questions.
