The hostilities in Egypt confounded me. I had little understanding of the history, people or culture of region. But I always turn to my favorite source for documentaries and interesting content that can fill the gap: Netfix. They never disappoint.
I came across this series, Egypt, Secret of the Pharaohs (National Geographic) and loved it. There are so many other wonderful programs on the streaming service, too many to mention. History abounds on Netflix, so just indulge your inner geek, ok. Just give in.
And here is the World News from the New York Times about Egypt with updates from all different sources to indulge your interest in the current scene.
So check it OUT!
