I am a fellow at the Center for Arabic Study Abroad (CASA) at the American University of Cairo. I suppose I am learning quite a bit although I feel like I am actually getting worse at Arabic every day. I would like to contribute more to this blog, as well to the Foreign Policy Egypt Blog for which I also write, but I’m not so good at finding the time between Form VII verbs and أدوات الربط. I started boxing recently with some Tajiks at the Russian Cultural Center and am addicted to the chocolate petit fours that are sold at the bakery down my street (about $4.3 for a kilo). Led Zeppelin is the greatest rock band ever. I played in a band in college called Hearts of Palm but did not do any singing because I have a terrible voice. I also have terrible handwriting (in all languages). I generally look like an idiot in pictures and my brother is much cooler than yours.
I am happy to hear all of your comments, critiques, and suggestions.
