This blog was originally designed to keep me sane as I began learning Arabic. It morphed into a blog of musings about Arabic, the Middle East, and the Islamic World, as well as book reviews about those topics. Then, the blog became a place to keep my family and friends updated on my adventures while I was living abroad. During May and June of 2012, I had a 6-week long internship in Cairo, Egypt through a international student organization called AIESEC. I taught English at the Awladi Orphanage in Cairo, home to several hundred children. I lived in an apartment in Nasr City before moving to Maadi (each is a distinct area of Cairo). I experienced President Mursi's election, camped in the western desert, rode camels by the pyramids, and had countless other experiences. I have since moved past this blog, on towards new endeavors, but if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment! Enjoy!

The Old Apartment

Since we have now moved from lovely home in Nasser City, 
I feel like I should post photos of it before I show you the new place in Maadi 
(which is, by the way, among the nicest apartments I've ever seen).
The old place has a special spot in our hearts, but, as you look at these photos,
be reminded that it had no working appliances of any kind and practically no airconditioning.
