Life in Egypt

Had the opportunity to visit Egypt with the wonderful people of SV IDEE in May of this year. We visited Cairo, helped out in one of the local elementary schools, shared meals with the locals and explored the city.

Cairo itself is a beautiful city. I found Egypt to be very interesting, partly because of its rich history but also because of the nice people and great food. Maybe one of the last Arab countries I’ll visit. As I have now found out that from an outside perspective there isn’t much (observable) difference between people and culture.

Glow Eindhoven

Glow Eindhoven is one of those light festivals you see all over the country. Glow seems to be the oldest and the biggest. Once you go you’ll have a hard time finding a good place to look at the many light shows spread across the city.

Tried to take various photos. Mainly concentrated on the architecture as I found most other light displays less interesting and even harder to photograph. I think I did well with the church.
