Okay. What you have to realize here is that the Nile, unlike the Tigris-Euphrates, has a HUGE deta within which flow numerous channels of the Nile draining into the sea.

Check this out:



And this sattelite pic:



And so, for the Nile, the delta itself can be seen as a big 'mouth'. And this mouth/delta begins right at 30 deg. N latitude, where Giza resides. The Nile's 'mouth' therefore 'opens up' at 30 N.

Does this make sense to you now?
