Give me an R, give me an S!

Yesterday I finally spoke with Hossam el-Hamalawy, thanks to Jack Shenker, who was able to organise a meeting in Nasr City. Hamalawy is known for his blog Arabawy and his activism in the Revolutionary Socialists (RS) an underground Trotskyist movement with ties to the British SWP. 
Another important feat is that Ahmed Belal arranged a meeting with the Muslim Brother MP for Mahalla, next week. So on Wednesday the 20th I'll be travelling to Mahalla in the Delta.
During these final ten days I will try to conduct interviews with "high priority" people on my contact list. Plus I want to attend at least two more classes of Arabic, the one I'm having this afternoon not included.
All is going well at the moment, I will be a little sad when leaving Egypt the 26th, but I won't deny that I'm looking forward to be back in Belgium, for many reasons - one being more important than the others ; )

Plus you've got a "Welcome back Brightie / HB Lobelia / Bye bye dissertation" - party to look forward to!
