1. Yes, I have ridden a camel in Egypt. In 2000 I went on a mission trip with another lady to Cairo to help a Christian school for Sudanese refugee children. During a weekend outing, we rode camels and that night watched a laser light show depicting the history of Egypt beamed against the pyramids at Giza. The graphic does a good job showing how rough the ride was!!
3. Yes, I've recently been blessed with a state award for elementary teaching.
