My life before the revolution was very busy with work and I did enjoy every minute of it, there is nothing like talking and showing people my country and life in my country but when they ask me about freedom, education, health I do answer their questions but with lots of sadness because Egyptians are very kind, welcoming, love to laugh and proud nation, proud of our history, we went through a lot in the last 5000 years. But we are missing lots of things to have a better life, a life that matches our history.
My country was so corrupted in all levels and I see that every day in my work and my groups can see it as well and in all my talks to my groups in the last 6 years I was saying if things in my country didn't improve something will happen, but what happened was much more than I had in mind.
DURING the Revolution:
was lots of mixed feeling first everything happened when I was leading a western desert tour, was afraid that anything will happen to my group, first thing came to my head how to take my group safe to the Airport and when I did that start to think that the country heading to the unknown, especially in the first 3 weeks after the 25th of JAN then things start to get better.
such a huge change happen to Egypt in 18 days didn't know if its reality or not but really didn't matter as for sure Egypt did change and its going to be a good change
AFTER the Revolution:
after the revolution, I was and still am so happy like most of the Egyptians that we are changing to be a better nation really feeling the meaning of having a better standard of life with better education, health care, freedom and justice which was really missing before the revolution and I start to read about other revolutions in different countries and then realised that it will take time, a time we need adapt the change we are going through, I am so proud of what we did and I really enjoy talking about the revolution to my groups, also did feel sad that my work affected badly after the revolution but its a normal thing to happen just wish that everyone to come to Egypt to see the change its allot better in so many ways
My country now drawing the main lines to shape the country future but again need time to adapt the change Egypt start to be better than used to be
My hope that will take less time to change, because the Egyptians can do it , they did it before.
