It's been a while!

Midan Tahrir Cairo, Fall 2010
I sort of assumed this blog would end when the trip to Egypt that inspired it ended.  However, there has been a lot of interest in the subject matter since then.

All hell broke loose in Egypt right after I left.  It was heartwrenching to watch.  I fell in love with Egypt and the Egyptians, and it was almost surreal to see the very places I came to associate with peace in such utter turmoil.  Yet such is the paradox of the Middle East.

I have referred a lot of people to this blog in an effort to answer questions about traveling there.  But since I won't be keeping this blog over time, I now refer its readers to my new one.

Please visit my author website for additional updates, and you may contact me there with questions or comments about these travels.
