Observations from my travels

New year, new travels, new blog.

This will be a place to record observations of what I notice day-to-day in my travels in Egypt & Tunisia in spring 2012. It may continue after that, it may not.

This will not be a place for deep, worked-out political analysis. But there will no doubt be the odd act of drive-by explanation of the Tom Friedman type (in which a conversation with a taxi driver explains the direction of change of the GINI coefficient in country x over the past 20 years). If so, forgive me – it’s sometimes too tempting to resist.

Otherwise, this is mainly a repository for story, anecdote, colour. A field journal of a kind, then. I hope you find something worth reading.
