Writing a tribute to my Grandmother is, at the moment, very appropriate. She died last month, and that has helped our family think about what she meant to us and all the adventures she had over the course of her long life. She suffered from Dementia in her later years, and indeed at times I thin...

In the beginning of my work as a journalist specialized in the cultural affairs in Egypt, I had a short, but so impressive phone call with the great Egyptian poet Abd El Rahman Al Abanody, God rest his soul.
