Hello all
Well it has been a while since I last updated my blog, so here goes. for the past few days i have been living in the youth hostel right next to the train station. Awane is hot, very hot actully aswane in the afternoon is about 45 degrees, although a cool breze blows off the nile you can't escapte the heat. As a result i spend my morning going to sites and monuments and my afternoon hindout in the a/c, only to emerge like everyone else at dusk. at night the town comes alive, its very diffrent then in canada, everybody goes at nigh, every night of the week, you see familes walking around with their children up to midnight. The people are very nice and in the evening when i have not westerns to hang out with i can just walk up and down the main drag, in front of the nile and strike up conversation with egpytions. I do admit i am getting a little borad of aswan mainly because there are not to many tourist here, most of them are here as part of package tours and simply shuttled on and off ships, but since i am here for two moneths i am taking my time and will not be leaving till sunday, when i will boad a train and take it to Luxor where i will spend a week or so. overall i am still getting use to adjusting to travling life, it reminds me a lot of frontier college in that there are not as many distraction as back home, no tv, no movies, no music (i don't walk around with my cd player cause i just feel like i am flaunting riches) and no friends ( i miss everyone very much) so like frontier college i just have to learn to get use to chilling out and enjoying my time, which means i spend a lot of time just walking up and done the the nile talking to people and saying to to boat trips (captions come up and harrese every five minutes into going on one of their boat trips).
anyways that is all for now, and i will send out another big email on sunday or monday when i leave for luxor.
in till then
much love

Just typeing to say hey. It sounds very lonly. There was this huge traking shot the i remember Mr.Steve showing the class back when i was in com-tech. I think the movie it was taken from was called shelltering sky or something. Any way it was about this woman who after getting divarced lives her whole life behind and goses to this very desolate afganistan like coutry where she is sourounded by forign sights tastes and sounds. It's like she's on this self mposed exile from everything she has ever known inorder to find out who she is. When i read your jounal entry it made me think of it. At the time mr.steve stressed how forigen the scene was to the charater the the lonely isolation that the scene was showing.

I often escape from the reality around me when real life starts to seem to scary. I have even withdrawn from the world around me for months at a time. That is my way of dealing with my...

When i was asking kathryn about kaz at your grad she said that unless kaz gets a bone marrow transplant thingy from her brother she won't live. Can that really be true? Is it really that bad?

I assume mom told you about mrs. cole's family scandal so i won't bother you with that. I hope to go see emily's play with mom soon.
In case any one is wondering that thing with that guy, chris from work, is like so over.
It's funny how it's eaiser to type about something than it is to talk about it. I think it is the lack of a face that dose that.
send me an email soon
lots and lots of love
