We Four in Egypt

Now back in the US!

It’s Blog Day!

So today is Blog Day, organized by some people who decided we should all get together and spread the word about other blogs we like to read.

Way back in January, I recommended some blogs written by expats here in Egypt. I’m supposed to share new blogs, and since lately I’ve also broadened my expat reading to include sub-Saharan Africa, these blogs reflect that.

First, from right here in Cairo: Khan-un-drum by Yasir Khan, a fantastically talented Canadian photographer, documentary filmmaker, and teacher. Read his blog for good writing, interesting stories (including one on Zahi Hawass, the director of among other things, the Pyramids complex at Giza), and amazing photos, including a series from a spring safari in Kenya.

Marc wrote the excellent Ferenge Addis Blog when he lived in Ethiopia. Now he’s back in DC, and traveling the world, especially sub-Saharan Africa. So check out Written in Caps.

I recently started reading White African, a blog that focuses on technology in sub-Saharan Africa. Really interesting stuff here if you have any interest in technology in the developing world.

I just started following the expat Bex in Moz written by a woman who is a mom and park ranger in Mozambique. They’re on their home leave now, but I hope soon to read more as interesting as this post on their newly built house.

Also new to me is Citizen Africa, which of late has covered Africans in the Olympics, but also covers other interesting news from sub-Saharan Africa.

Happy reading!

  1. Mrs. 4,

    Thanks so much for the kind words and for plugging Khan-un-Drum. I’m blushing (and if you can see a brown man blush, it means he’s REALLY blushing). Stay cool.
