Dear friends and all who became a part of my life in Cairo,
It saddens me greatly that my time in Cairo has come to a close, and I will be leaving this city and country, for an indeterminate time. My life over the past four and a half years has been unique and unforgettable. Although I spent a lot of time with some people, and little time with others, all of my friends in Egypt will forever be in my heart. I have learned so much in my time here, things that cannot be taught in a university, and its to my friends that I have to be grateful for this. Whether they were fellow foreigners or locals, fellow students or not, they became an invaluable part of my life, sharing with me their knowledge and experiences. I will never forget my time in Egypt, and I will never forget my friends in Egypt, for they became a part of my family.
I wish to thank all of my friends in Cairo for what they have given me, and what they have shared with me. They will always have a place in my heart. I will miss them all. I hope that our paths cross again someday.
