Egypt's Forthcoming Elections

Like this ancient Egyptian, we should pray for a stabilising outcome for the September elections.

The Egyptians, who gave us a moral lesson in Tahrir Square [bar villains and gropers], are the nicest people in the world.

They deserve the stability that will allow us to return to this wonderful country. 

I was born in Egypt and lived in both Cairo and Alexandria. I lived intermittently in Eritrea.

I was at school at the English School in Heliopolis, Cairo until I was 17 and then went to Oxford - returning  only as a mere tourist to the country of my birth.
