After more than 8 years apart, two friends met again by chance. Manel and Sherif, former Fulbright teacher assistants, first met in Cairo, Egypt at a teaching foreign language training course. They last saw each other in 2009 when they traveled to the United States for their program assignments in Virginia.
Manel now lives in southern France, while Sherif lives near the gulf coast of Texas. While visiting Texas for a conference, Manel learned her long-time friend was living nearby the convention. The two decided to take a day to catch up and invited Webb Jam for an inside look at their reunion adventure.
Manel and Sherif drove to Galveston Island, Texas, to walk along the beachfront and enjoy time at a nearby adventure park. Enjoy these photos of their magical reunion.
