Back To Business


It's been an exciting few weeks here and doesn't necessarily look like it's going to get boring any time soon. Egypt is sort of working...just as it has always sort of worked. The people are amazingly adaptive and resilient. The government shutting down the mobile phone lines was a serious problem for all of us here. If you look closely, you will notice the shepherd on his mobile and his son texting as he drives the flock. You know you shouldn't text and drive.

Fun to see the mix of sheep and modern, texting shepherds! Glad you are doing ok - Eygpt has been in the headlines a lot lately....

After all Egypt has gone through over the past weeks, it is good seeing something like normalcy. Good luck!

Great post. I've been happily, silently following you for some time now and thought about you when we were all watching the civil unrest. I'd love hearing more about your first-hand experience of the change that is happening there. Glad all is well.

oooo texting and driving, good thing he's not in Ontario... he'd be getting a ticket for sure!
Good to see you back on line, and I'm so happy that normal life seems to be on the way back at last.
