.....For time immemorial, the Arabian Tribes-people fished, hunted & gathered along the banks of the Nile River, moving from the plains to the forests-& back again-as required by necessity, & creating makeshift shelters whenever the elements became too extreme. This latter task was aided by the wonderfully durable granite & sandstone that was so abundant, between the marshes & the river valley. Indeed, so much did the Arabian tribes revere the stone they used-for shelter, tools & weapons-that they began to assign it almost quasi-religious properties......a gift of some unknowable God or Gods. As the centuries passed, several of the tribes learned how they could reliably grow fruits & grains most of the year round. The tribe most behind this revelation became a focal point around which all the other disparate tribes gathered. With so many families in one place, it has decided to create a place of permanent habitation. They appointed one man-by the name of Hufn Sadiq-to guide them in those earliest days. ....and so the Village of Cairo was born, upon the banks of the Nile!
