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.
