A New Blog from Cairo

Qifa Nabki (whose blog is marking its third anniversary: mabruk) calls attention to a new blog from Cairo by a colleague of his, Send Down the Basket. The blogger, Margaret Litvin, is a Boston University Arabic professor living in Cairo for only a semester, but she's lived there before and has a good eye for topics of political and cultural interest. Qifa blogs about it here; and also flagged it to me in an e-mail, and after taking a look at it, I concur. It's a worthy addition; I wish she'd be staying longer.
