The Atkins in Cairo

The four of us (Nancy, David, Curtis, and Trish) arrived in Cairo August 4, 2004 to begin our adventure. When David saw the position advertised at American University in Cairo, everyone was enthusiastic about the possibility of going to Egypt. For Nancy and Trish, it was a homecoming to their family's home of several years in the 1960's, and a return to Trish's alma mater at AUC. For David and Curtis, it was all new.
