since my junior year of high school i have been obsessed with egypt. my history teacher had planned a two week trip for june that i signed up for in september. by may there had been a bombing in a tourist area and the trip was called off.

the group went to greece and i stayed home and lamented my lost opportunity.

right now i’m sitting in the cairo suburb of ma’adi on the cusp of realizing my dream.

my friend martin lives here and has offered himself, his home, and his knowlege to my trip and it looks to be amazing. i’m still bleery eyed from the long flight so i’ll be fighting the urge to nap for another 6 or 7 hours…but after that i’m sure to have interesting things to report.
