Ahlan wa sahlan, habaybi! Today was a super exciting day, as we had many incoming villagers! They began arriving, for the most part, at 2 PM. Our new villagers passed through several stations, including registration, the nurse (for health forms and lice checks!), customs (where their contraband was confiscated), the activity-choosing station (calligraphy, candle-making or Model UN) and a name-tag making station!

I-Day was truly an incredible experience. It was so much fun to see all the other villages and to experience their culture and language. And Al-Wāḥa did an amazing job!

I’d like to thank the I-Day team for doing such an amazing job this year!
