We will depart May 23rd for eight weeks overseas returning July 18th. During that time we will teach six weeks of workshops to an estimated 125 students. One thing we did not take into consideration are the costs of COVID PCR tests. They have to be taken no more than 3 days before flight departure so free tests are out. So for us both and added $1,500!, USA $300, Dubai twice $400, Egypt $200, Pakistan $200, Tanzania $200, Addis Ababa $200.
