A Trip to Fayed

October 26, 2008

Last Friday two volunteers and myself took a bus full of school students from in front of Resala, Nasr City branch, and off to Fayed. It was an amazing one-day trip. Despite the rain that started a few hours after noon, and ended shortly after that, the kids enjoyed the day greatly.

I was taken by the beauty of the chalet we stayed at the momen we set foot out of the bus. It was surrounded with a colorful garden not to mention the soul refreshing air that filled the place, a far cry from the highly polluted air of Cairo.

Token of Appreciation

October 19, 2008

Today was my first day delivering English language lessons to second secondary school students at Resala on a volunteer basis. I was delighted during the lesson to be blessed with such responsive students. It seems the students as well were happy to have me as their English teacher at Resala. I was rewarded near the end of the lesson with what I considered to be a sincere token of apprication. They insisted on giving me a pack full pack of it.
