Who am I? Thats a very existential question, I fit into many different categories and yet cannot be defined by any of them. I am Muslim, I am American, I speak both English and Spanish (sometimes both at the same time if I’m really agitated), and I’m married to a very handsome Egyptian who puts up with my bs.  I have many opinions on a lot of things, most of them don’t mean much in the grand scheme of the world but sometimes I like to pretend they do. I try to find humor in my everyday because I think that life without laughter really isn’t worth it, and often it comes right down to laughing for the sake of my sanity. Many years ago I learned the reality of absurdity in the absurdity of reality and its stuck with me; the day I can’t tell the difference is the day I’ll hang my hat up and call it a night.

  7. Hi Molly,

    I really enjoyed reading your blog. I wish best of luck to you and you hubby. It’s refreshing to get a point of view of someone who is not looking through rose color glasses. My whole ideal of Cairo changed a little after reading your blog. I think for the better. Anyways, best of luck to you!!

  14. Hola, yo dejé un comentario en otro de tus blogs! tengo varios amigos musulmanes, entre ellos varios egipcios, pero ninguno hablaba español. Sería magnífico leerte en español también, para conocer más de esa cultura fascinante visto a través de tu ojos, y en un idioma que conocemos.
