Egypt does look a little different. It sounds different. It smells different. It feels different.
But isn't different a great thing?
Exposing yourself to people, places, and experiences that are different from what you're used to helps you to broaden your mind and reduce your fear of living.
Nothing is guaranteed in this life. There is no absolute security in life. As they say, only death and taxes are for certain.
So why not take an adventure to explore a people and a land and a culture that might turn out to be the greatest thrill of your life?
We ain't in Kansas anymore Toto...but here we can walk like an Egyptian (which, alas, is just like everyone else) and grow our minds and our spirits and our souls.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "All life is an experiment."
Experiment. And truly live life.
