Egypt, another Garden of Pleasure

Genesis 13:10
And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.

Did you catch that? Egypt once looked like the Garden of Eden! That's not exactly the typical picture that comes to mind when we think of that land today.
