One Last Jumble of Posts

This is the post where I make up for all the apology posts I've written earlier. I'll begin by posting pictures of the last two major events of my trip, going to the pyramids one last time on camels in daylight and making a trip to the holy lands.

Pyramids on Camel this Time

Jeruslam, Palestine, and the Holy Lands

The old city of Jerusalem
The wall encompassing Bethlehem
The western wailing wall
Masjid al-Aqsa, the third holiest place for Muslims
Floating in the Dead Sea

Petra, Jordan

Indiana Jones movie
By the columbed row
The monastary, after an 800 step hike, 30 minute run

Sorry, I'm back soon though

I apologize for not having posted in a month. This past month has been hectic due to midterms right before finals and then finals. However, I managed to squeeze in a trip to the Black and White Desert (whose pictures will be posted up shortly) and I returned last night from Jerusalem, Palestine, and Petra in Jordan. My experiences there will be written shortly as I now have seen reality for myself there. I'm leaving Egypt tomorrow night and should be back in NYC on December 19th at 1PM. After resting, celebrating Eid the next day, unpacking, and recovering from jet lag, I will make sure to hit up everybody. Can't wait to be back home soon. Just one more paper to go and khalas. Hear from me soon. Hope everyone's semester went well and that your winter breaks are phenomenal!
