    Traveling
    Awesome!

    That's where I live!

    Egypt
    Oh...


    There's an INTPc poster in Egypt right now, but she's in Cairo. Probably would have some tips though.

    YOU'RE a bit late. I went on this trip a year ago.

    (They rebuilt the library, though, and it looks pretty neat. Has a great view of the Mediterranean. )

    Oops. Didnt notice the person above me who bumped this thread was a spammer.

    Interesting "gesture"...though you gotta admit, it wasnt the building, but the books that were in it, that it was known for...

    Default hello and welcome

    Glad to see you in Alexandria , my hometown that used to be a metropolitan city before the despotic rulers erase its nice western culture in the 1950s..Anyway, do you still reside the city of Alexandria ? What did you like ? Can you tell me about your expereince ?

    I'm spending 8 weeks in Alexandria, Egypt over the summer, studying intensive advanced-level Arabic, trying to figure out 'ammiyya (dialect), and generally studying a whole lot, and only going out and having fun when I have the time for it, and when the program hasn't scheduled something for me to do.

    We'll be traveling to the North Coast for one weekend, and to Cairo for another. Our classes will be from 8am to 2pm, our homework will probably take us 4-5 hours, but the rest of the day will be free for hanging out with each other, with our language partners, and generally having a good time.

    Keeping all of these (possibly unnecessary) details in mind... If you've been to Egypt (or anywhere nearby), or if you know any fun phrases in Egyptian Arabic for me to learn, or good songs to sing (besides "Inta Masry" by Nancy Ajram), or general tips/warnings for a wayward American (female) traveler to Alexandria, this is the place to post them! And surely someone else who would plan to go to Egypt might benefit from this thread too.

    So... Does anyone have any words of wisdom for me?
