Edit Blog Post

I've been getting a lot of questions about why there aren't more blogs.
In a nutshell, I haven't stopped traveling, but I've been to lazy to type up my blog.
I made it through Eritrea, and am now back in the Middle East, studying Arabic in Sana'a.
The blog should be uploaded Real Soon Now.
Thanks for reading.

You could write more about such a sacred place (although often void of form). Hope to read more soon!

shukran jazilan!
thanks a lot for your blog from a bosnian and her husband currently in istanbul. i only wish there were more people like you. Please do not omit the political comments, we need it to counterweigh all the insipid and cowardly garbage that dominates the media. it's a relief to read notes from a "leftist" turk who does not hate the arabs!

I have enjoyed reading your travel journal. I mostly enjoyed reading about Asmara, my former home. It is truly a diamond in the rough. Thank you for your honesty as you discribed your experience.

arabic amor¿‡„4
ahhh, the arabic world is amazing, i worked in Oman for the first half of this year, and now am missing it immensely being stuck in miserable London. I recommend everyone learn some basic arabic and head to the middle east... even with a simple "salaam alaykum" the locals greet you with smiles, and fantastic hospitality...
