Alright, so it has been a week since my interview, and I have yet to hear back about the internship with the Desert Development Center.

Sooo I'm thinking about pulling the plug on that internship. It does fit right in with my interests in sustainability, but it isn't the most ideal set-up. I just wish that this guy was more reliable with his e-mail replies. The Awlady guy is always so prompt!
To be honest, as much as I would like to go chill at the American University in Cairo for 6 weeks, I don't feel like it would be a genuinely Egyptian experience. Everyone at AUC is fluent in English, and they are upper middle class Egyptians. The new campus is like a 30 minute drive from downtown Cairo, so it wouldn't be quite so convenient, plus it wouldn't give me the cultural experience I want. However, the campus is beyond gorgeousness! I am going to make a point to visit there while I'm staying in Cairo.
