We've left North America for the boundary between Africa and Asia.
The Suez Canal connects the Red Sea to the Mediterranean. There used to be a swing bridge across the Suez, but it was destroyed during one of the wars between Egypt and Israel.
When I asked the project engineer what was the biggest problem building this bridge, he said it was removing all of the land mines. I guess that's why they called it (hopefully) the Peace Bridge. We'll take a closer look at this interesting structure tomorrow.
