Cairo (Illinois)

Cairo is in Illinois, USA on small strip of land in between Missouri and Kentucky as well as the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, made famous in Mark Twain's "Huckleberry Finn". It was in former times a major port, but is now a semi-ghost town as a result of the decline of the river trade.
