After a half hour or so of battling with technology (we had a few initial connectivity and audio issues), we finally made contact between New York and Gabes. There was a strong turnout in Gabes, and despite a last-minute session time change in New York, the majority of the US participants also made it to the session.

The topic of our first conversation was student life. Questions revolved around living situations, campus life and extracurricular activities. Take a look at the video clips for a sense of the conversation.

More on extracurricular activities at our next session on November 12th.

We have a great US group coming together for the program; later this week my counterparts in Tunisia (Hajer and Fethia) will be speaking with students at the University of Gabes to identify our group in Tunisia. 

Assembling new participants has been one of the most exciting parts of the program. I’m always amazed that so many people in both locations are anxious to take part in the conversation - there’s definitely an enormous interest in learning more about each other’s societies.

Stay tuned to hear more about our program launch within the next 2-3 weeks!
