Sinai, Egypt

Sinai is a penninsula located across the Suez Canal from Egypt, and borders with Israel on the eastern side. It is part of Egypt even though it was invaded by Israel in 1956 and in 1967. It is the most well known province of Egypt and the inhabitants speak Arabic, but it is geographically separated from the rest of Egypt. And it is the only "African territory" in Asia [which doesn't make sense]. There are also three bridges across the Suez Canal connecting to Asia so basically you can walk from Africa to Asia whenever you want, or, you can drive through a small tunnel connecting the two continents.
