Cairo is located on the edge of the Nile River, near the spot were the river splits into two branches, at the delta. Cairo is Africa’s biggest city it has a population of 13 million and each day 5 million people travel to Cairo to work. Cairo is over populated, housing demands and transport services are under great strain. Cairo wasn’t designed to house so many millions of people, Cairo has also used up lots of good farming land, which could of been used to grow more crops, to feed its population, but instead factories and high-rise buildings have been build apon it. A great number of magnificent carved masonry domes, mausoleums, and mosques have been preserved in Cairo, principally in the old medieval areas.
