My heart is torn between East and West. I live somewhere between the present and the past. I don't know who I am.

Just another human being biding their time on this earth. Passionate about current affairs, history, politics (particularly MENA region), religion, cute animals and food.

Eid celebrations from the Anti-Coup sit-in at Rabaa Square in Egypt. These amazing people have now been protesting peacefully for more than 40 days. Their sheer dedication, passion and perseverance is truly an inspiration for all.

Eid Mubarak everyone :)

Best video I’ve seen yet on sexual harassment in Egypt. The reactions of the harassers are priceless!

Hold your head up high and be proud of yourself, your gender and your right to walk freely in our male-dominated society. Don’t let the shame kill your voice, it is the harassers who should ashamed, it is they who should put their heads down. It may be YOU that allows the next sexual harasser to think twice before they lift a finger, throw a nasty comment or stare at you inappropriately. YOU may be the girl to change this. SPEAK UP!

Graffiti by Keizer in Cairo, Egypt. It was made as a result of brutal security forces being presented as “Snow Whites” in the Egyptian media after their attack on protesters earlier this year in May, 2012.
