So, we had a wonderful time at the Autumn ball, which took place in the garden of the British Embassy. I even won a free flight to London, yay me! Well enjoy the photos (more…)
As I have said before, Laura and I had a wonderful time in Paris. It took a while to upload all of the pictures we took, but here they are.
I hope you enjoy them as you live vicariously through us
So we have left Paris, and are now back in Cairo. Paris was an awesome city, and we both had a lot of fun. We took lots of pictures during our trip, and we will post them soon. Until then, here we are enjoying our last visit to a Parisian sidewalk cafe. EDIT: Sorry, the picture was accidently lost. (more…)
We arrived early this morning, but have no internet access at the hotel, so this is the first chance we’ve been able to get online.
We’re both pretty tired, so we haven’t really done anything exciting, except try to find free wifi… Guess where?
Well, the semester has finally reached its end. It’s been so relaxing not having to worry about school work lately, but since I’m not leaving Egypt for another couple of weeks, I am left here with lots of free time. So in the evenings, I’ve been spending my time at the BCA clubhouse in Mohandiseen, which has been a blast. I’m posting some pictures from the last couple of nights, in order to share my fun with you guys. (more…)
Well last night was really fun! Thanks to everyone than came out and drank and played pool.
I’m posting the few pictures I did take that night for your enjoyment. (more…)
At the beginning of this month we enjoyed a field trip to the site of Tell el-Amarna. Tell el-Amarna is the site where King Akhenaton of the 18th Dynasty founded his famous city of Akhetaton. Akhetaton was a planned city revolving around Akhenaton’s cult of the sun disk, the god Aton.
The primary purpose of this visit was for us to explore the private tombs found in the northern and southern cliff faces at the site. I took over 300 pictures throughout these tombs, so I hope you all enjoy them. (more…)
While spending my last week in America with Laura in Indiana, Arto arrived in Chicago to begin his new studies. Seeing as Laura and Arto missed each other last time she was in Egypt, and this would be Arto’s first time living in a foreign country, we felt a road trip was in order. Unfortunately there aren’t many pictures, but I hope you can enjoy the ones that I did manage to snap. (more…)
Better late than never, or late as usual in my case… A little over a month ago some of the family got together to eat some fondue and drink some delicious wine in celebration of my Grandpa’s 80th birthday. It was fun, and delicious. (more…)
