Cataracts in Egypt?

Answer

Cataract in Egypt is a word used to refer to rapids along a river, specifically those for the River Nile. Cataracts are sections where the river tumbles over rocks and which have for years kept boats from going up or down the river from Equatorial Africa to Egypt. They define river segments where granites and other rocks rest along the edge of the Nile.
