An Egyptian living in Europe but her heart stayed back home. Having some random thoughts about the before and after pictures. Ghawayesh means bracelets. In my context it symbolizes the cuffs of my culture. I don't know if I like them or hate them. Thanks for passing by.

Hahahah @ ^ H@fSS@^!

I have no clue how a country can go bankrupt! No clue ya ^ H@fSS@^!

@ An Egyptian

Exactly my question too!

It is not unusual for a country to declare bankruptcy (remember that Egypt went bankrupt at the end of the nineteenth century).
India went bankrupt in July 1991 after the first gulf war pushed up the price of oil, the IMF came to its rescue but imposed the condition that India restructure its bureaucracy. They did that and their economy rebounded greatly. They are now a major economy. They bought the largest steel company from England.
Brazil is another economy that was in a deep crisis in the late 1990 but now is also a success story.

The problem is not an Iceland issue but a global crisis of financial institutions. Iceland went down first because it had made those institution the major part of its new economy and they did not have the backing of the Euro.

Egypt was already hit hard, the CASE-30 index lost 16% today.

Harassment in Italy is notorious. But the catcalls I experienced in Venice and Rome pale in comparison to the shockingly sexual statements and shameless groping my roommate and I endured during a visit to Egypt.

i didnt know how to react when i read the above mentioned line, cry or laugh, moseeeeeeeeebah.

This blog has posted repeatedly about the ta7arosh problem and with a very strong voice.
Another strong voice in this issue is the following blog, also by a well spoken spirited Egyptian lady:
