My Weekly Palace

Life in this new and overwhelming city has recently been made much more enjoyable by my soon-to-be weekly vacation to a swimming pool that overlooks the River Nile.

On Friday, Georgina (the British English teacher at the school), Francesca (the newly arrived Italian teacher and volunteer like myself) and I visited the Steigenberger Nile Palace, where an entire day of pool-side lounging costs $7 American. I decided pretty quickly that it’s more than worth $7 to regain my sanity once a week in a place where Luxor’s street noises can’t be heard (the pool is surrounded on one side by the resort). I think I’ll plan my week’s classes each Friday on a lawn chair.
