From emailing Hosam, meeting him and reading the literature that he picked out, I was able to learn a lot about Egyptian culture- the virtues, the ethics and, what I find most interesting, how it differs from American cutlure. Our various conversations will show how eager Hosam was to teach me about his country and his culture. This demonstrated to me both his knowledge and his nationalism. Being exposed to someone with a disntinctly different culture than me has been simply eye opening.
