I liked the balance of information and experiences. The chance to meet and visit local people's homes, to walk through the shopping areas, and to experience Egyptian life, all gave me a deep sense of the culture. I came away from this trip feeling I had gotten to know a small part of the life and people of Egypt. It was rewarding.
