, housing, food and even water. Giant water storage containers were erected to supply fresh water until the Sweet Water Canal could be completed.

thumb 400px Port Said and Suez Canal (File:ISS013-E-44847.jpg) '''Port Said''' ( along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, north of the Suez Canal, with an approximate population of 603,787 (2010). http: www.portsaid.gov.eg magals ascan Lists List8 DispForm.aspx?ID 1 The city was established in 1859 during the building of the Suez Canal.

Port Said has been ranked the second among the Egyptian cities according to the Human Development Index in 2009 and 2010, http: www.rosaonline.net Daily News.asp?id 36636 the economic base of the city is fishing and industries, like chemicals, processed food, and cigarettes. Port Said is also an important harbour for exports of Egyptian products like cotton and rice, but also a fueling station for ships that pass through the Suez Canal. It thrives on being a duty-free port, as well as a tourist resort especially during summer. http: www.portsaid.gov.eg tourism default.aspx It is home to the Lighthouse of Port Said (the first building in the world built from reinforced concrete).

There are numerous old houses with grand balconies on all floors, giving the city a distinctive look. Port Said's twin city is Port Fuad, which lies on the eastern bank of the canal. The two cities coexist, to the extent that there is hardly any town centre in Port Fuad. The cities are connected by free ferries (Ferry) running all through the day, and together they form a metropolitan area with over a million residents that extends both on the African and the Asian sides of the Suez Canal. The only other metropolitan area in the world that also spans two continents is Istanbul.

Port Said acted as a global city since its establishment and flourished particularly during the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century when it was inhabited by various nationalities and religions. Most of them were from Mediterranean countries, and they coexisted in tolerance, forming a cosmopolitan (wikt:cosmopolitan) community. Referring to this fact Rudyard Kipling once said "If you truly wish to find someone you have known and who travels, there are two points on the globe you have but to sit and wait, sooner or later your man will come there: the docks of London and Port Said".
