Luxor and Asyut
Nate and Peter are working at the Suzanne Mubarak Library in Luxor. They teach adults computer science and conversational English. They have had the unusual experience of living in a hotel. They have enjoyed several outings with their students. A highlight was a visit to a Nubian home. My hotel in Luxor offered a fantastic night view of the west bank of Luxor. Lizzy and Sarah are helping with English classes at the Salam School in Asyut. They live on a large campus and float from class to class during the day. The campus includes a museum with some amazing objects from ancient Egypt including a mummy, a wooden coffin, mummified animals, coins, weapons, ancient textiles and sacred texts. All of the students have noticed the more relaxed (and quiet!) atmosphere in Upper Egypt in comparison to Cairo.
