Y8 trip to Rashid

Mon, 16/02/2015 - 15:59 -- Lydia Makram

The Year 8’s were surprised to find out many fascinating facts about Rashid and the Rosetta Stone on their wet and windy trip. The weather didn’t stop us investigating the significance of Rashid, especially prior to the 20th century and the new harbor in Alexandria built around then. The Ottoman influence is enormous and  is evident in not only the architecture but in the people living there too. We even got to visit the mouth of the Nile where it meets the Mediterranean sea!
