I have set up this blog site at the suggestion of many friends who think that my decision to move to Alexandria, Egypt to teach is at best "interesting" and at worst "insane." Perhaps it is somewhere in between. At any rate, rather than clog up Facebook with pithy, short, cryptic messages, this is a place where I can ramble on, should the spirit move me, and only those folks who are actually interested in what is happening in my world can read at their leisure.
The blog title? Well, it is a nod to another non-Egyptian woman who taught in Alexandria and who had her own "agora" or "forum" in which to speak her mind. Hopefully, I will not get dragged through the town naked, flayed and burned to death for my observations!
