Dear all.  I have now been back in Egypt for one week now after several weeks in Germany.  It has been an interesting week.
With the curfew and so many expats out of the country, life has been a cross between boredom and excitement.
 
I am trying to fill some of my time by helping to translate, edit and write plus home masses and masses for the German Sisters.
I am not supposed to go out much as a foreigner, but I do call friends and visit them for several hours during the day.
 
I think most of you have gotten the list of Christian institutions burned.  It is really heartbreaking to see this all happening.
Below are several links to work I have been involved with over the last few days.  I am fine and plan to stay here.  Doug
