Quick update 04.I.2009 12:33
Sorry for not posting the last two weeks, but I've started on three rather large pieces I haven't quite been able to finish, on Iran, Egypt and Gaza. Meanwhile Egypt, for its part, has been rather horrible to me, at least over the last week, and I'm glad to be leaving it. In the urban indifference of Cairo, you can still remain a bit anonymous, but here you can't even walk down the street without being constantly accosted. Everyone lies too - touts, policement, your hotel, tourist information - all in a massive conspiracy to get you to spend as much of your money as possible. Being overcharged, I understand - you're a foreigner after all - but to tell me there's no bus when I can see one is just too much. Besides that, I've been a bit under the weather and out of energy, another reason I haven't been able to get down to writing. But tomorrow it's off to Sudan, which should be an adventure, especially the 24-hour-boat-ride :S - if it's anywhere near as stressful as buying the tickets was, I'll need six sleeping pills or so. Anyway, photos and blog entries increasing in frequency soon!

Aswan, Egypt Eg
