I received this picture and note from my son who recently left Thailand to take a new teaching position in Turkey. He decided to stop off in Egypt on the way to Istanbul.
Without a doubt, Joseph is my adventurer! If he had been alive in 1492, I am sure he would have been Christopher Columbus’s first mate onboard the Santa Maria!
Greetings from Egypt!
Hi mom, just want to give you a quick update on how things are going.
Upon arrival in Cairo, I discovered that it was Ramadan, which means almost no one in the entire country eats or drinks from sunrise to sunset. However, when the sun drops below the horizon, everyone flocks to the streets to feast together. After "break-fast" the energy level increases tenfold and the streets are abuzz until early in the morning.
I bought a camera and ventured out to the Pyramids of Giza. I took a camel ride through the desert and around the pyramids. I climbed to the top of one of the smaller ones and descended deep into the burial chamber of another. Inside the pyramid, I laid down in the well that once held the sarcophagus and could literally feel the weight of the massive stones above me. That evening I watched the sun set behind those magnificent ancient wonders. It was truly amazing.
I love you momma, and miss you. Istanbul is next!
I would greatly appreciate your prayers for God’s protection over Joseph as he continues his travels around the world! I sure miss him!
