While there are still difficulties ahead, I am now so much happier than last posting – deeply relieved that I can stay in Egypt. Yesterday I did the trek from Siwa to Marsa Matrouh on the coast and got an extension on my Visa, which I did not think would be possible.
Thanks to everyone who knew I was so worried about this, for all your concern, prayers, positive thoughts and practical help. Especially thanks to T for his help, and for being more than ever at the top of my list of reasons I want to stay. Now I feel I can move towards getting back on my feet and solving my other difficulties, and building a better future in Egypt….Inshalla all this will be possible.
