We left Santa Barbara by bus at 1am on Friday July 9th and arrived at LAX at 3:30am. We hit the morning rush at LAX but managed to get forty-plus ensemble members on the plane bound for JFK in New York. After arriving at JFK in the afternoon we settled in and relaxed, slept, ate and played music while we waited for our plane to Cairo. Here is a clip of some of us playing some songs while waiting at JFK. Notice the Egyptians filming and singing along to the songs Hibbina and Hilwan min Yomna.
