I am in Alexandria, Egypt. Working at the Schutz American School. And it's been amazing.

I was invited here by one of the students, Omar (left, with me at the Roman theatre).

Day one, he gave me a tour of half the city. Telling me about castles and catacombs, libraries and landscapes. Alexandria is a wonderful place.

Day two, he took me to see a football tournament, to meet his family, to watch him play, in goal. His family are amazing. They have done so much to make me feel welcome. His uncles, aunts and his mother. Egyptians are the friendliest people I have ever met.

Day three - tomorrow - we're going to finish the city tour.

I worked with pupils at the school today, too. They were great. The football reading game went well. Omar in goal. There was a broken lamp incident, when the leather ball smashed into it. But that didn't stop the fun.
