This was initially a blog about the Egyptian Delta – and mostly Mansoura – written by a guy (that’s me) who was living there. I now live in Cairo but still make trips to Mansoura regularly. The blog will/should continue to post about life and politics in the Delta, along with whatever misadventures from the capital and country at large.
Though I’m the person primarily to blame for the posts on this site, an honorable mention is due to my fellow Mansoura informant/journalist/”mish blogger,” Mohamed Ezz, who really knows quite a bit about this lesser-known area of Egypt. You should really be following  him on Twitter. Perhaps do that now: 


That’s all for now.
