A potentially brilliant idea

I am missing Cairo a lot at the moment. So much so that when a couple of my students tonight suggested a holiday there, I pretty much agreed to try and organise it! Well, I say *I* would organise it, what I mean is, I would ask Kay how feasible it might be. I suspect I wouldn't have the numbers to justify a whole holiday for my students with Kay. But it might be possible to arrange something with Yasmina.

This has the potential to be brilliant. Or a nightmare! If I did this, I'd have to make it clear that I need some alone time too. But this is definitely starting to become a possibility in my head!

I was thinking about it last night in bed, and I think it's certainly feasible. I just don't know how much it would cost the students. I've now got a fun research project to focus on!

It's a shame flights to Egypt are so expensive from the US.

flights cost has grounded me. I googled the same intinery for NOLA we did a few years ago & it was almost double because of the flight.

Sahra just came back from Egypt & her pix are always wonderful

I'm dreadful at taking photos! I never remember to do it, however beautiful or interesting the thing I'm seeing is.

I can't afford to do it right now. And also Teaching. I can't just take a week off in term time.

I'd need a year or so to save up for it. The idea of doing it as a student thing is that it might mean Kay can give me some kind of discount! I need to speak to Kay and see what the options might be.

And also the very first thing I need to do is float the idea to the whole class. Because if there are only two who are interested, then it's a very different proposition.

Yes you'd get a discount which is good thing and you get to choose the program too- also a good thing

That sounds awesome. You guys are so lucky that Egypt's affordable from Britain.
