    I don’t know what to say or how to thank you for preparing this weekly “Aak” report! I’ve been in London away from Egypt for almost 6 months now, and will still be so for the coming 6 months as well. And I definitely rely on your weekly report on knowing what’s happening in beloved Egypt. Thanks for all your, this must be consuming a lot of your time! Thanks again and again for your efforts!
