Where the French astronaut posted on his social media accounts a picture of the Nile River and the Delta in particular, and commented on the picture how much he liked the distinguished location of this river. “The Nile and the Delta in Egypt, whose fertility contrasts with the surrounding desert and flows into the blue of the Mediterranean,” he added.
