To celebrate, I've produced an unusual WanderLearn episode.
Instead of one guest, I have two! Instead of one location, we wander throughout Cairo with two Egyptologists of High-End Journeys: Ramez Salama and Ahmed Aziz.
Ramez appears first in the podcast, but I recorded more of my conversation with Ahmed. Both are fascinating.
If you're going to Egypt, you must ask for High-End Journeys to guide you. It's worth it!
Last year, I wrote an article about on Forbes entitled "What To Do In Cairo After You've Seen the Pyramids."
Much of my research was based on my travels with both of them.
If you listen to the questions that I ask Ahmed, you'll get some insight into what I do everywhere I go. You'll see that I have a habit of asking impertinent questions about taboo subjects. I love to probe deep into a culture to understand what's really going in a society.
I recognize that my method has its flaws: anecdotal evidence has its own bias.
Still, if you do it often enough and with enough people, you usually can start forming a pretty accurate picture of a region.
I talked with dozens of Egyptians so that my chapter on Egypt is fair. Besides, it will be the final chapter in my book, so it has to be the best!
Speaking of my book, if you want to get a preview of the book as I'm writing it, please subscribe to my Patreon!

One of WanderLearn's top patrons, Kathy Kennedy Enger, asked me to draw attention to Health Access Sumbawa. I am happy to promote this remarkable nonprofit. In 2014, Jack Kennedy founded the organization to bring malaria control and healthcare to remote, impoverished communities. It started on the remote island of Sumbawa, Indonesia. Since then, it's expanded thanks to generous donations. Visit their website to learn more and to donate: https://healthaccesssumbawa.org
