What am I?

          River NILE

The Nile exists because of two rivers: The White Nile and the Blue Nile which join at Khartoum. The White Nile is noted for its remarkably steady flow in supplying clear water from the lakes of central Africa. The Blue Nile carries twice the volume of the White Nile, and for a short period each year it floods. It is then that its usual blue colour is lost in the black silt it has washed down from the mountains of Ethiopia. In summer, the Nile's browny-yellow water turns as red as blood, and then it turns green.

Untwist the word LINE to get NILE.
