Culture Kits on UNC Homepage--and not basketball!

So happy and proud to see my visit to an elementary school and the sharing of the Daily Life in Cairo culture kit featured on UNC's homepage

What a fun group this third grade class was!  They loved the stories of watermelon juice you could buy on the street, and how Cairo kids their age were learning both Arabic and English (imagine!), and the games, and (even!) the school books.  Several decided then and there that they would learn Arabic.  I hope they do. 

I'm so very excited for the students and for us!  Carolina does a great job of outreach, and our school partners are the best.  And because basketball will most certainly return to the homepage, I'm including the permanent link.  Enjoy.
