I had an unforgettable time at Arabeya. We stayed in the appartment close to the school (Mohandiseen), so every morning we only had a short walk to go to class. I studied ECA and the teacher was very good, and freindly, and patient, too. I love Egypt and I long to speak the language. When not art school we went to the Al Azhar Partk, Khan-el-Khalily, Tahrir, downtown also, or we just studied at home. We also went to the White Desert and the Red Sea. A good mix of study and pleasure.
After my return home I took online lessons, which also are very good. Again a patient teacher (which I need, for the language is difficult), and learning a lot. I sure hope to go to Arabeya again soon, inshallah next year!
