My adventure in Egypt-written byDarija petropoljacHave you ever heard of Egypt? Do you really know whatEgypt truly is? Of course when you ask someone thesequestions most of the people would say it’s one of the oldestcivilizations in the world, the country of the Pyramids, thepharaohs and the Nile – the longest river in the world.Although these facts attracted me the most when I decided tocome to Egypt to do my internship with AIESEC Alexandria,Egypt turned out to have another side that I didn’t know about.Firstly, I would like to point out that I have already been in Egypt six yearsago as a tourist. Many things have changed since then and I still can’tbelieve that I am living in Alexandria.After six hours and two planes, I was finally in Cairo, the capital of Egyptand of the largest capitals in the world. Two guys picked me up at theairport and my adventure started. The first thing I noticed in Cairo andAlexandria later is the traffic jam. I already knew that but what I saw on thestreets was amazing. Too many cars, no real tracks because the only goal isto fill in the empty space. To point out, not only traffic isn’t predictable,but also driving because drivers never know what and whom to expect infront of their cars. Crazy, isn’t it? Even though they drive in this way, thereare not many accidents. Secondly, I couldn’t help but notice the clothesamong women and girls. What I found out is that girls must cover theirbody just in some situations. Honestly, I didn’t believe it since I visitedsome places and saw it with my own eyes. They were wearing shortdresses and their shoulders were uncovered at different kind of parties,touristic places, private beaches, etc. All in all, women decide whether tocover their bodies or not. Some of them wear long black dresses andgloves and you can only see their eyes. On the other hand, there arewomen who cover their bodies and hair with the veil and there are manyof them who don’t wear veil. As you can notice, there are somedifferences and that depends on how religious they are. And the mostimportant fact – I didn’t expect this kind of hospitality at all. Egyptiansare really nice, kind, helpful and they smile even they have someproblems. Once I was trying to take a cab with my friend. We had anaddress written in English, but the taxi driver couldn’t read it. In thatmoment some woman stopped her car, called us, read the address andtold us how to pronounce it. Also, she told us that if she had enough time
she would take us there. In the end she gave us her phonenumber in case she needs to speak Arabic with a taxi driver. Whenwe found the place, I texted her and she told me that I can call herif I need anything. Honestly, we were amazed and happy that wemet such a kind person. According to that, I feel like I am in myown country because people always rush to help you and doanything just to make you feel more comfortable and relaxed.There is no point in writing about Egypt if I don’t say somethingreligion – Islam. Islam is one the strongest religion in the world that makes a strong bond among all Muslims. When it comes to that, I would like to say few words about Ramadan – the Holly month in all Islam countries. It started on the first of August, but the date changes every year. During this month, there are many decorations and lamps on the streets and balconies. When I saw it for the first time, I thought it’s the New Year. During this holiday, people don’t eat, drink and smoke from sunrise to sunset. It’s really exhausting, especially in summer. You probably wonder how they cantake it. The point is that they start fasting approximately at age ofseven, some of them even earlier. One of the most important factsis that Muslims pray for five times a day and it’s obligatoryduring Ramadan. Muezzin calls them for a pray and they can doit in any place, it doesn’t have to be a mosque. After sunset, it’stime for Iftar or breakfast because that’s their first meal. Peopleusually spend that time with their families, relatives and friends.This month keeps them together and strengthens their relationship. All in all, Egypt is a beautiful country with great history and one of the most hospital people I have ever met. No matter if you are coming to Egypt as a tourist, an intern or something else, you will see many great places, find out interesting things, make new friends and want to come here again. I can assure you in that, because I am already thinking about my next visit to this lovely country. Come and see Egypt – where it all begins.
AIESEC in Alexandria AIESEC in Alexandria focuses on many issues in order to develop the youth. Issues vary from Entrepreneurship, Volunteerism, to Banking, which we call Projects. Each project tackles a specific topic that concerns the Egyptian youth. We aim to inform the youth about these topics through projects. Projects involve sessions given by professionals from the corporate sector. In other words, projects can be described as a compressed learning course that helps develop youths’ knowledge, teamwork, discussions, and communication skills. “We are famous as the city of projects as well as having the best servicing team”I had the opportunity this summer to spend 1,5month in Alexandria, Egypt, working in the project“Where It All Begins”, on the promotion of tourismof Alexandria and then on the promotion of the holeEgypt. I was working daily with 6 people in order tocreate a touristic guide including all the beautifulsecrets of Alexandria. I attended professional photoshooting seminars and I learned to capture everymoment, I wrote articles about my experience andwith my team we were responsible to promote theproject in our external environment. It was one ofthe best, most creative, different, full of challenges and unforgettable experiences of my life… Maria Koumoukeli, 20
