yeah cairo is crazy, even crazier than istanbul. crossing the street over there is a serious test of wills. you just gotta walk straight and at a steady pace and never look any of the drivers in the eye and trust that they'll swerve, which they do. Over here the traffic isnt as crazy, but they don't swerve, you just gotta run out of the way, more like playing frogger :D
haha, i love travelling, but yeah sometimes it's very difficult, and egypt is not an easy place to travel to. Middle east is gonna be awesome (leaving in a month for eastern turkey, syria, jordan, lebanon, israel and egypt). what made cairo "quite the trip"? sounds interesting.
right now I'm actually kind of going away from photojournalism as a career. the industry is still struggling at the moment, and its super super competitive. when i was in it, it was just constant stress and worry and I'm just not committed enough to dedicate my whole life to it, which is what Id need to do. Now I'm getting into the teaching thing for the next few years, after that going back to uni to get a degree in development studies, then a career with ngo's and nonprofits. might come back to work in the middle east or i might try to go to africa, i'll figure it out when i get there.
