  Title: Eastern Mediterranean Region
  Description:
  This sweeping panorama features the Sinai Peninsula (30.5N, 33.5E) and
  covers  an area from the Nile River into Iraq.  The Fayum Depression, the
  valley of  the lower Nile and fertile Nile Delta are vegetated and dark in
  contrast to  the barreness of the surrounding desert.  The split northern
  end of the Red  Sea Rift is prominent, separating Sinai from Africa and
  Arabia.  A boundry  between light desert and darker brushland marks the
  Egypt/Israel border.
