I have found as I travel that most places are slightly different than what I think they are going to be like. Egypt, however, was exactly how I have always imagined it! The pyramids, tombs, temples, ruins, and nile river were all incredible and we were all in a pretty much constant state of amazement that we were actually seeing them in person. Yes, the inevitable happened and I got sick for a few days (which the whole group predicted and joked about because I was so overly paranoid about everything) but I survived and it was so worth it to get to visit all these sites that I have dreamed about since studying Egypt in elementary school. So stay tuned for all my Egyptian adventures!

Pyramids and Temples and Mummies, oh my!
Well, after eight days of Egypt awesomeness and five bottles of hand sanitizer, I am back in Jerusalem! So much happened on this trip, and I experienced so much, that I do not even know where to begin. We fit so much in that our days started before six and did not end until after ten-so that means you should all be prepared for a post overload over the next few days as I try to cover it all!
