* Time: mid
I met Dean Montassir in her office. She asked me to contact NASCO tours, which is the travel agency to which I am supposed to arrange with them the details of my travel to Italy. I knew at that moment my exact role, which is the interport student of Egypt in the Summer 2000 trip of Semester At Sea. I also learned some of the functions of an interport student.
* Time: between
9th of June to the 23rd of July
My first encounter with the outside world. I was in Austria, doing my practical summer training in the university of mountain sciences in Leoben. During this long stay, I learnt so many things either on the scientific or personal levels.
