Last night we got back from an incredible two week trip to Egypt. It was 7 guys from Central and all we brought were backpacks. I kept a detailed journal of my notes each day and I’m planning on spending the next few weeks blogging about some of the things that stood out to me. In the meantime, here is a collection of some of my favorite sentences (on the lighter side) as I read through my journal. I include them in this list with no contextual explanation so you can enjoy letting your imagination fill in the rest and maybe even keep you interested to read for the rest of the story in the days to come…
“I have definitely underestimated the power of wet wipes…”
“It’s not as fun as you might think when it’s pitch black, you’re naked, and you are in a small and unfamiliar room…”
“…my favorite moment with him [a local worker] was when his wife called and her ringtone was “Love Game” by Lady Gaga. He blushed like nobody’s business and ran out the room to talk with her. It was fantastic.”
“Our entire team took a hot bath together…”
“…when he refused the kid did a death leg grip and attached himself to his legs in defiance…from that point on we literally started running away from the little ninja…”
Here is a picture of our group with Chris and Mahmoud, a couple of guys that we became friends with while we were there.
