“A theme emerging from my learning about Egypt has been trying to grasp the nuances of Islamic life in modern times. At the hotel, rooming together as a 33 year old accustomed to more solo travel wasn't something I was initially thrilled with. But from the first day it's been a delight and a crucial use of time. It's given me a chance to ask more intimate questions as I process what I've learned. And I can see how devout Islamic practices blends with daily life. ”
