Alumni Highlight!

 I climbed this famous mount Mousa with an Islamic Bedouin guide in the middle of the night. Underneath the dark sky and bright stars I arrived at the top of the mountain to see the magnificent sunrise over the mountain tops. A small chapel marked the top. While some Orthodox Russians started to pray and cry loudly, the Bedouin guides went to the Mosque next to the chapel. Two religions literally next to each other. On the way back I joined my Islamic guide Ahmed to his place, and we started to talk about his family and his children. This was the perfect example of the inclusive mindset of the people at this place, where they prove different religions can live in harmony with each other. Ahmed says: “My son is called Mousa”.
