South Africa, rife with opportunities to learn and serve. Senegal, land of teranga (hospitality). Jordan, both moderate in modernity and part of humanity’s most ancient history. Morocco, an exotic mix of French, Arab, and Western influences. Multicultural Turkey—locked between three continents and criss-crossed by five empires.
