"The 2016 Pan Arab Conference on Diabetes was well attended and well received. The program was extensive, and the speakers came from all over the world. As usual, I met several interesting people, some of whom I hope to work with at some point. Most impressive is that the conference has been held for the past 20 years; clearly, it is an established event for providers working in the field.
Cairo, as the largest city in Africa, is a fascinating place to visit. The ancient history of the pyramids and the age of the pharaohs predominate, as expected. All the guides have degrees in Egyptology, so the tours are excellent. My trip to the pyramids was the most interesting day I have spent in memory. I had a personal guide who, for 9 hours, kept me enthralled with the details of Egyptian antiquity. And of course, the ever-present near-death experiences in the kind of traffic one encounters in many countries added to the excitement. Overall, the conference and touring made for a wonderful week."
