R. Crusoe Travels Off the Beaten Path [Video]

Watch/Read More

Want a royal tour of the Imperial Cities of Eastern Europe (Prague, Vienna and Budapest)? Or do you want to fulfill a Dream of Indochine (Laos, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia)? Or do you just want to be the first on your block to see Libya (with Tunisia thrown in for good measure)?

Then R.Crusoe & Son has a tour for you.

R.Crusoe offers its customers some four-dozen possible itineraries for trips that include experiences beyond the more common famous building/famous collection package tour.

Can Ethiopia and Egypt agree on the Nile? | The Stream [Video]

But the project threatens a lasting rift between Nile basin countries downstream – especially Egypt.Egypt fears that rapidly filling the Ethiopian dam will arrest the flow of water downstream, where Egyptian farmers already struggling with the impact of climate change rely on irrigation from the Nile.

But Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al Sisi recently told the UN General Assembly that “the Nile River must not be monopolised by one state”.In this episode of The Stream, we look at what the GERD means for people living in the Nile basin and whether Ethiopia, Egypt and Sudan can find common ground.Join the conversation: TWITTER: https://twitter.com/AJStream FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/AJStream Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe#Aljazeeraenglish#News#Ethiopia#Egypt#GERD
