I arrived at Seth’s apartment in Calif this morning at 3:30AM my time. A long trip. It’s now about 6PM on Wed evening and the guys are planning a big party tonight. Lots of people with the girls preparing the food. Seth has three roommates. One is married and visiting the church here for a conference. The other two are single, like Seth. This is a big singles town and they party a lot.
I will probably not be able to keep up tonight since I’m soooo tired: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Well, it’s official. I’ve paid for my ticket and, unless something happens which I’m not expecting, I fly to Israel on July 10th and arrive 36 hours later at 3AM Saturday morning the 12th.
The school in Cairo has asked me to write my philosophy of education and I did that today. I’ll send it off as soon as I finish writing this. I’ve decided to be totally honest and not pull any punches. If they don’t like what I write, too bad. I believe that, for most young people, public (and most private) education is close to child abuse. That doesn’t mean all schools have to be that way. There have to be some that actually try to prepare individuals for their futures. I may never hear from this school again. I’ll let you know.
Seth has just returned from tennis and a dip in the pool. It’s a tough life, but I guess someone has to do it.
Will write later. People are arriving for the party. Whoopie…
