Action Plan

Take pictures, ask about words overheard

Pre-Departure Preparation

I plan to evaluate the Arabic language and compare it to Spanish, looking for similarities. Many words in Spanish are derived from Arabic because of the 400 year influence of the Moors in Spain. In addition, I plan to compare the Arabic architecture in Egypt to that in southern Spain.
