Egypt – A New Adventure

Arriving in Egypt the day after Christmas in 1986, I began an incredible two week long adventure. Having never been out of the United States before, I had certainly picked an exotic place to begin my international travels. To top it all off, I was just recovering from an extreme bout with the intestinal flu and was really in no shape to travel. Due to the international situation in the middle east in 1986, security at Kennedy airport was extremely high and flying by Egypt Air didn’t help matters any. An Iranian airliner had just been shot down the day before, so as we were about to board the plane, we were escorted to a small door behind which were five BIG Egyptian security guards with semi-automatic weapons, who thoroughly searched all of our carry on luggage, even taking the lens caps and lenses off cameras.

Incredible India!

It has been said that there are two types of people in the world, those who have been to India and those who have not. If one wishes to truly come to terms with their own humanity, I advise them to walk the streets of Chennai (formerly known as Madras). I thought that I was cultured, well-traveled, and had just about seen everything that the world could throw at me. After a few hours of strolling through the city, I felt as if I was traveling again for the first time. Reflections on my time spent in India during the Fall 2010 Voyage of Semester at Sea.
