    • “Tosh-Tosh”

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • On a weekend trip to Siwa we had the opportunity to be driven in jeeps through the expansive rolling desert dunes. This man, “Tosh-Tosh” (meaning “Crazy” in Arabic) was our driver. He led our small group in a chorus of songs, “Ana...
    • A Need for Tranquility

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • The Sahara offered a sort of peace that could not found otherwise in Egypt. The shapes and curves of the dunes changed with the strong winds, so we stayed together to assure that no one would get lost. But Steve wanted to be lost, he wanted to...
    • Ancient Christian Village in Syria

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • Our group took a bus deep into the country to view the secluded ruins and explore this ancient Christian village in Syria. I climbed on top of a very high pillar to take this picture of the cross beams of a church.
    • Ancient Pillars

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)

    • Fishermen Houses

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)

    • Rooftops

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • My Egyptian Arabic instructor Mediha often spoke of the dust storms that occasionally strike Cairo with little warning in the winter and spring months. Her descriptions of these natural phenomena (dictated in a thick Middle-Eastern accent) always...
    • Separation from Reality?

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • This photo was taken at one of many security checkpoints along the wall separating Israeli occupied Jerusalem and the West Bank town of Bethlehem. It was taken from the Palestinian side. This checkpoint is the one most common for the hordes of...
    • The Book Keeper

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • A mysterious shopkeeper mans his post in this hole-in-the wall Turkish bookstore. The hand motion captured at the last second and the self-portrait in the background adds to his rich character.
