Hi guys - thanks for all of your good wishes and all, school broke for summer on June 21st, and frankly, I got the hell out of dodge.  Spent a weekend in London, and now I'm spending the summer in North Carolina, USA with my spouse.  I don't have to go back to Egypt until August 25th, and Mir and I are working on me not having to go back at all.  So just wanted you all to know that I'm safe. :)

Hope the "not going back" plan works out.  Emotions are running high in Egypt these days.  One on one, the people are probably very welcoming.  Mobs turn people into something so different, though.  That mentality, in any country or culture, has a way of harming by-standers.  Best of luck to you, Erian.

The 'not going back' plan has an interesting story behind it...
Coming into the USA with my Mir (my spouse/partner) after a brief sojourn in London, I was sent to secondary immigration checks (in other words, I was detained).  However, during the course of the interview with the immigration officer - to see if they were going to let me into the country for the summer - the officer that processed me suggested a possible route for me to finally get a visa, and be allowed to actually stay and live with my love.  We are currently investigating that possibility with the assistance of an immigration lawyer.  To put this in context for those that don't know me well, I have been in this relationship with Mir since 2004, forced to live apart and seeing each other only usually for a maximum of 13 weeks spread over the course of a year, each year.

So yeah - I hope the 'not going back' plan works out too. :)
