Therefore, we made the Nile River and flooded it. We had talked about the delta, and so, she knew that we needed to make a triangle at one end. Yes, I know that the Nile does not have a foil river bed, but I'm not God! We planted some "crops" which did start to grow after the flood started to dry up. The problem came from the fact that we live in the Midwest and the Nile River got flooded two more times and had to fight lows of 40s!
