Re: [RC] Advertising: working student position in Egypt available - Jackie Floyd

If I were not tied down to a husband and my business, I'd be there in a FLASH! I had the wonderful opportunity to visit with Maryanne at Recoub Al Sorat in June of this year. It was a college graduation gift for my daughter. We visited Cairo and Luxor and then spent four days with Maryanne. Even after 6 months, I still haven't been able to sort through the over 400 photos I have, but here is a small album just on Maryanne's place.
I can attest to Maryanne's ability to run a tight ship and take care of whomever finds their way to her establishment. It would be a fantastic opportunity for any young person to visit another country and experience it through local culture. And a fantastic learning experience.
Now to figure out how to magically be there and here at the same time .... gonna havta work on that one ...

I can offer two young women a chance to work with my horses, learn Arabic, learn Egyptian cooking, herbal remedies, and practice my method of bombproofing horses. As a number of Ridecampers will attest, my horses are remarkably bombproof in quite an extraordinary environment. I specify young because there is a lot of riding to do keeping my herd exercised and trained and accompanying me on trail rides. It's easy to average about 4 to 6 hours a day in the saddle. I have a guesthouse with three bedrooms, its own kitchen and bathroom for the visitors and there will be some time off for visiting things in Cairo on days when we aren't too busy. The farm is out in the country, at least 40 minutes from the nearest supermarket, shopping mall,  theatre, or restaurant, so social night owls won't like it much, but there are cable TV, art supplies, and a terrific library in the guesthouse. Some of the books on Egyptian antiquities will be required reading.
