A Welcome to all OT's in Cairo....

This past month, we were finally able to have a get together for all the OT's living in Egypt. Joanne was missing as she just had a baby boy, so congratulations to her! Some of us have been living and working in Cairo for a few years and others are newcomers.

A few of us already knew each other and others were meeting for the first time. It was a nice chance to meet and get to know one another. We have a very international group of OT's living in Cairo, as we come from the US, UK, France, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Japan.

Hi Laura, Wow! You really are a diverse group!!

Sorry it took me a while to get to your site. I linked you on my sidebar. Maybe I'd find the answer if I dug a little bit more, but how did you end up in Egypt as an American? I am going to check out your blog a little more thoroughly and see if I can find any postings you may have written on on cultural differences you experience in OT in Egypt vs USA.

Hello Karen,

You may be digging a while, as I haven't posted a personal history of my experiences in Egypt!

My husband is Egyptian and his work keeps us in Egypt. I have lived here for 4 years.

Perhaps, I will do a posting with respones of the other OT's regarding opinions about cultural experences etc.
