Twitter user, Furrygirl has created an infographic using images from Raiders of the Lost Ark to try to explain what is going on in Egypt. You can see the image below but first, here is a bit of small trivia about the location setting:
“A good portion of Raiders Of The Lost Ark was set in Egypt, Tunisia to be exact. The canyon where Indiana threatens to blow up the Ark was shot in Sidi Bouhlel, just outside of Tozeur. The location was previously used in the Tatooine scenes from 1977’s Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, since many people in the location crew were the same for both films. Notably, that canyon was exactly the same location where R2-D2 was attacked by Jawas. The Tanis scenes were filmed in nearby Sedala and it was a harsh experience due to the heat and disease.
