EGYPT - Collection #2
to Al Tahrir Square today -Saturday the 26th of February- to
the soil sample for you.. I started
from my current city ( Zagazig ) by taking the minibus to Cairo,
then I took the (Metro) to Al Tahrir Square. There, I met Sherif
-my friend- at 11 am. to take the collecting jar from him.. We
found demonstrations demanding dismissal of the Government of
Dr. Ahmad Shafiq & there were a large number of military
police.. I tried to collect the soil from every available part
of the Square. Sherif took some pictures for me while I was
collecting the soil.
finished, we called another friend -who lives in Cairo- to
describe to us the way of the nearest DHL office. We reached
it with a little effort,
they were very kind & helpful & took the package to send it.
will answer the questions you asked me in a former e-mail.
years old.. I finished my studies at the Faculty of Medicine
at Zagazig University last November, and I am going to be a trainee
physician at the beginning of March for one year. I want to
be an ophthalmologist, so I have already begun my training in

Alaa & Mohammad, who are studying Medicine too.
from a city called Mit Ghamr in Daqahlia province, but I was
raised & grew
up in Hail which is a beautiful city in saudi Arabia.. I came back to Egypt
after I finished my high school to attend collagein Zagazig University,
that's why I live in it now. I love reading and I sometimes,
write short stories..
I love traveling & meeting new people. Tow years ago I was chosen
as the ideal Student of the universities of Egypt, so, I had the opportunity
in VIMUN 2008 (Vienna International Model of united nations). I used to
be the president of the Literary Club & the head of the Glory Family
collected in March 2011, a difficult time in Egypt.
