The Suez Canal
The Suez Canal connects the Mediterranean Sea (foreground left) with the Gulf of Suez and thereby the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean and this way shortens the sea passage from Europe to the Middle and Far East. The northern end of the canal is in the green Nile Delta but it then crosses directly through the desert with the Great Bitter Lake bein part of the canal. In the background the Sinai Peninsula and the Red Sea.
