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.
