Trip to Egypt
DONE BY: Ayesha P | Stanford U. '21
LENGTH: 2 weeks
LOCATION: Luxer, Cairo, and Effu
DESCRIPTION OF WORK/ACTIVITIES DONE:
Traveled with family (especially memorable moments include: cruising up and down the Nile & meditating in the King's chamber in the pyramid at 6am)
I know independent traveling is very important and common especially for those taking a year off--but also, Egypt was not a safe place to be by myself. Especially in countries where you don't know how they operate and don't know the language--be sensible given the context of the place that you're visiting and keep personal safety in mind.
MOST MEANINGFUL LESSON TAKEN AWAY:
It's a place that I thought I'd never visit, but it's one of the best places that I've been. Seeing civilizations that are 5000 years old and yet have physical remantns was extremely cool.
