on tositarina suomalaisesta arjesta: Isä tuo itkevän pikkupoikansa päiväkodin johtajan puheille. ”Poikani kunniaa on loukattu hänen sukunsa edessä”, isä sanoo. Poika on kertonut isälleen päiväkodin arjesta.
I’m going to have a ‘meme break’ after this weekend.
We’re travelling next weekend and then I’m going to be busy because we’re moving out of Egypt.
I’ll be back in April – when – not sure yet.
But this weekend I’m going visit and comment all those player’s blogs who leave a comment here.
(I’ve noticed that many players just leave their URL on the link site but never comment here or anywhere.)
In December we visited Cairo Opera House complex and there The Egyptian Modern Art Museum where you could not take photos but here’s the link to their web site where they have a lot of pictures of the art inside the museum.

There are many reasons why Egyptian women consider leaving Egypt:
- look for another job
- looking for better pay
- to escape society and its rules and restrictions
- to escape the pressures of society on women to get married
- adventure, to explore the world
The personal status of the women is usually either single or
divorced, as married women are
naturally tied to the fates of their husbands.

If I do travel, and decide to come back, will I be up to the consequences?
All these thought provoking questions have to be answered, before considering leaving Egypt.

May I introduce my dentist in Cairo – Dr. Amr Shabka.
He is not just an ordinary dentist, but rather an artist! He is very gentle.
He never uses those creepy ‘irons’ which are used by dentists in Finland.
You know those metal strips which are screwed around the tooth and tightened so that the gum cracks!? Autch! I hate them!
No. Dr. Shabka whittles the fillings like an artist!
Thank you for the comfort of the treatment!
