Egypt isn't what it appears to be in the media...but that's no real surprise, since not much is. I moved here in the late 80's from Toronto, Canada, with my Canadian/Egyptian husband, my son and my daughter. The children adapted quickly and we decided that this country was a good place to live. Now I wouldn't change my home for anything.
I might as well warn my readers that my posting to the blog seems to be dependent upon the rate at which the gerbil that powers my server is running. Lately, the gerbil hasn't been too happy and I'm lucky to get 30 thou Kbps, which barely downloads my email. To be able to post with a photo takes a webpage and the gerbil-powers-that-might-be have to be very happy for me to get a webpage. OR I can haul my laptop to a friend who has a decent connection.
There is a rumour that I might be able to get DSL sometime in the near future. This would be heaven on earth.
So any vibes from you all to keep my gerbils happy in the meantime would be much appreciated.
