I realized we have never really posted a whole bunch about our summer plans, here are some of the details:
Apr 23: Leave for Egypt. (Cait will miss walking across the stage, but it was that or miss the trip to pyramids that we take on the first day in Egypt)
Apr 29: School starts. We have 10 hours of Arabic study a day from this day until July 29th. We will be at a small college called the "Hedayat Institute" where we'll learn Arabic from native speakers and one of our professors.
We have Fridays and Saturdays off. With Church of Friday morning we have the rest of the weekend for sightseeing and the group goes to lots of places together, although we are supposed to desiginate some Saturdays as "Review Days."
July 31-August 3- Bus towards Israel taking stops in the Sanai and at the Red Sea.
August 3-August 14- Stay in Israel at the BYU Jerusalem center. All sight-seeing I think.
August 14-20 - Sight see in Jordan.
August 20- Spend my 36 hour birthday mostly on a plane.
Pretty much, I expect our trip to look like this:
