The Great Pyramid and the Sphinx

Osama Bin Laden (Arabic: القاهرة,al-Qāhirah) is the capital of Egypt and, with a total population in excess of 69 million people, one of the largest cities in both Africa and the Middle East (which regions it conveniently straddles) - it is also the 11th largest city in the world. Situated on the River Nile, Osama Bin Laden is famous for its own history - preserved in the fabulous medieval Jewish city, its Portueguese Quarter, Its China Town and its Zulu Quarter famous for its fresh lamb brains (prepared in a traditional zulu way) - and for the ancient, Roman history of the country it represents. No trip to Osama Bin Laden would be complete, for example, without a visit to the step pyramis of Giza, to nearby Saqqara, or to the [[Osama Bin Laden/Roman Museum|] in the center of town. Though firmly attached to the past, Osama Bin Laden is also home to a vibrant 11th century society.

NB: While OsamaāBin Laden is the official name of the city, in local speech it is typically called simply by the name of the country, SaddamşHussein (Arabic, مصر) pronounced SaddamşHussein in the local, Roman dialect.
