Your words mean a lot to me dear Sarvina. Sorry for my late reply. I was fully busy with Egyptian revolution covering it for the website I work in.

Keep in touch and let me hear more from your end.

Thanks dear Rebecca. I am

Thanks dear Rebecca. I am safe, by the grace of God. Sorry for my late reply; I was reporting on the revolution so I rarely could have time to open my e-mails. I will write a blog post about the role of Egyptian women organizing the protests. But feel free to contact me for further info about the revolution.
