Amreekia Min Bab Al Sharayah

That was the name of my old blog. Translated, it means an American woman from the old, poor and rundown district of Bab Al Sharayah in Cairo. I was given this nickname because although I was born in the USA, my mentality is more ghetto Egyptian. I'm a curious mixture of east meets west, and dont care if you call me balady!

I'm going to slowly bring some of the old posts from Amreekia over here (see archives), basically to give new readers some background. I hope you'll enjoy the old and the new and join me on this fascinating expat journey!

i read this post of yours a few days ago...i've found it very hard to comment on him because my heart is very sad. i first remember him in Ghost. but mostly the sadness is because my husband was following his story. he also was treated for a while at the hospital i work(i never met him). its very sad. he was a very brave person and passed with great dignity!
