Prof. Mel McCombie, Visiting Associate Professor of American Studies, has spent the past academic year on a Fulbright Fellowship in Cairo, Egypt. She has maintained a record of her adventures, including scuba diving(!), in her blog, Mel McCombie’s Fulbright in Egypt.

Recently, Prof. Paul Lauter, Allan K. Smith and Gwendolyn Miles Smith Professor of English and Program Director of the graduate program in American Studies at Trinity, visited Prof. McCombie and her husband. In her most recent post, Mel tells the story of that visit and includes stunning photos of their trip down the Nile to visit the Bent and Red Pyramids, the Great Pyramid at Cheops, and the Sphinx.

Prof. McCombie will return to Trinity during the fall term, 2012. In the meantime, check out her entire blog. The photos alone are worth it!
