Welcome! Ahlan wasahlan! Bienvenido! Bruchim habaim! In invite you, in all my linguistic capcities, to see the world through my eyes, which I intend to keep world-wide-open for as long as I can manage, until they water to the point of flooding or droop with the inevitable, unfortunate force of sleep.
For four months I will be studying in Alexandria, Egypt, also known as umm al-dunya, mother of the world. These months will find me dedicating my sorry brain to the mastery of Arabic language through Middlebury’s program at Jaamiyat Aliskandariya (Alexandria University), and gorging myself on all Egyptian culture within my reach. Preceding that, I will have dude-ranched in Durango, Colorado and stolled through London and various English sites. During and after my Alexandrian adventure I also plan to poke around the Middle East. I will do my best to record the interesting bits here for your reading pleasure!
