Phew. One hell of a trip. It’s been nearly five years since the last time I went back, and a lot has changed. A lot has progressed in Khartoum. Yeah. There. I said it. Even I was surprised.
I’ll be sharing my thoughts about the trip soon, just like how I did with Beirut.
I’ll also need to finish a round up post for Global Voices which you can expect, and the 7 Categories of Faith series which I got too busy and distracted to continue with.
Lastly, the journey with my book continues. Yes, it’s still happening. Although I must admit, writing it is one thing. Getting it published is a whole different story. Luckily, I’ve learned my lesson.
I should have hired a professional a long time ago. It would have spared me some wonderful headaches and lack of clear direction.
Things now are so much better. The whole writing process has been deeply therapeutic, and it’s taken the form of a memoir. Plus, given my recent career transition, I’m going to enjoy a lot of more free time.
PS: Meanwhile, watch this cool video by Mona Eltahawy about how the internet is impacting Islam. Agreed!
