Desert Fossils


For the unprepared traveller, the Egyptian Desert (like any desert) can be merciless, and even deadly. However, for the prepared explorer, it has a vast store of treasures waiting to be discovered. In this page, we focus on fossils.

Below are some pictures

El Gezira Tower


El Gezira Tower was build in 1961. It is 187 meters tall, and is located in the center of an island in the middle of the Nile River in Cairo. It has a very nice view of Cairo from all around. You can see the old Citadel, The Pyramids, old Cairo, the Nile river flowing from the south and into the north, and a lot more.

Here are some pictures of the tower, and from the tower

Extended Family - Ahmed Abou Youssef


My only maternal uncle is Ahmed Y. AbouYoussef. He used to have lots of hobbies, including fishing, hunting, boating, ...etc. In the hunting area, he used to shoot every available game in Egypt,starting from water fowl (Pintail duck (بلبول), Teal (شرشير), Mallard (خضاري), and other species), quail سمان, coot غر, to Egyptian Wild Cat, Jackal, Egyptian Cobra snakes, Tawny Eagle, and other stuff. Oh my! Those were delicious (the edible birds, I mean! Not the snakes).

Antiques Collection


I am fond of antiques, heritage, and the like. The real collector in the family is my mother. Throughout her life, she was an avid collector of antiques from various parts of the world. Here are some samples of things that were collected from various places over Egypt of the previous decades.

These pictures will give you an idea on what we like. They were taken by a (now old) Minolta Dimage Digital camera.

Saudi Arabia's ISPs - Service Watch


We are starting a section on the quality of service, whether it pertains to individual Internet Service Providers (ISPs), the Saudi Telecom Company (STC) or King Abdul Aziz City for Science and Technology (KACST). Each one of these is responsible for certain parts of the internet infrastructure in the kingdom, as highlighted in our overview on the Technical Setup of the Internet in Saudi Arabia.
