Hi all - not posted for some time. Just a catchup to any followers:
Moved back to Calgary - for those not knowing, Alberta Canada.
Nice cold weather, vibrant city and - everything works as expected and on time.
We moved flats in Cairo before I left. part of relocation was getting telephone line moved (an Egyptian thing - you take you telephone line with you) which has internet contract with it. Well, after 2 months still not working.
Me, in Calgary - made online request for TV and Internet 20 MB internet on Friday and requested service technician on Sunday (playing with them - for Egyptian readers Sunday is your Friday) My flat door was knocked on 8:30 in Sunday and all setup by 8:45 and working. My paranoid behavior could not believe - but - TV working and internet. Tested internet - WOW download movie in 10 minutes. And no bukshees (money under the table-in fact I offered and never do that again as strongly rebuffed)
Yet, the infrastructure in Egypt is in toilet No one has reliable internet at moment
Take care you folks world wide - the Islamist spring is on the way. but I beleive with my heart the Egyptians will meld and do what is best and do Egyptian things and not be controlled by the vast extremist minority, no logic, people like Salafists (i,e, Taliban or other extremists).
I was in Egypt during revolution and never in a persons life could one foresee such a event. Only to have stolen - but the youth that did this only need to get organized as the revolution was hijacked.
Praise be to the youth that fought and died and let's not let their ideas and sacrifice go un-rewarded
My personal l opinion - come and arrest me Morsi - Ha. Actually name is Morsillini (ie. Benito Mussolini- Google if your too young to make connection.)
