Back to the United States

Here am I back again to United States. I have spent the past five weeks in Cairo. Lots to be said about the trip and about my experience living between Egypt and U.S for the last couple of years at the very different levels. Every time I go to Egypt, I see it from a different perspective. I also find new changes.

Lots of sad and promising events have been taking place in Egypt recently. Politics have been heating up in Egypt in an unprecedented pace. Apprehension, fear and anger are in the air among Egyptians. I did not have much time to blog while in Egypt, I tried my best though. However, now I have a lot to blog about.

Blogging is flourishing in Egypt. I had a couple of meetings with some academic researchers who are studying Egyptian blogging and I had my say. I have some nice pics from Egypt, not that much though as I wanted. I guess I was busy talking.

I have enjoyed my trip tremendously. I had a very heavy agenda and I ended up with not doing everything I wanted. It was a successful trip though and so many blog-related arrangements were nailed down for future projects.
