Lev and I have finally settled into our new apartment in Zamalek, an island in the Nile in the center of Cairo. It's a great location and has a nice balcony with an almost-Nile view. Otherwise, the weather has been hot and our classes are in full swing, leaving us both exhausted and busy every day. I have 4 hours of class 4 days a week and a Qur'an reading class one day a week. Outside of class, I have tons of reading and other work to do and enough World Cup games to keep me entertained for a month or two (Go USA!).
