Just finished this awesome book: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019CSRMH4?keywords=crocodile%20love&qid=1451994428&ref_=sr_1_1&s=digital-text&sr=1-1

Turns out, the difference between enlightened travel and enlightened romance is: very little. A paean to mindful living.

I have been writing a version of this for years now: While Egypt’s regime is brutal and unjust, its ruthlessness is rewarded by other governments with aid, weapons and business deals. All in the name of that euphemism, stability.

Mr. Sisi’s regime wages war not just on political opponents but, as I have reported, against atheists, gay men, belly dancers, even pop stars. Ms. Taweel is but one of many young people dragged into jail by a regime tenacious in its cruelty. Why blindfold a woman who walks with a crutch?

Sometimes, it feels as though nothing changes; the only details I have to update are the names of the new detainees and, every so often, the name of the dictator du jour (until five years ago, it was Hosni Mubarak).

Let's see: small, square box left in the hotel bathroom.  Name is "Climax" and it's "Exotic" style.  What is it?
I know what you're thinking, but you're wrong.  It's an air freshener.  (Fooled me too!)

It's 2015 and software developers are focused with laser accuracy on their goal of annoying the user by being helpful in unhelpful ways.

"The first bombshell came in April when authorities broke up a customs agency graft scheme in which officials allegedly took kickbacks from businesses to lower duties on imports. Former vice-president Roxana Baldetti’s private secretary, Juan Carlos Monzón Rojas, is accused of being the ringleader. Monzón is a fugitive and Baldetti has had her bank accounts frozen, properties raided and been banned from traveling abroad during the investigation."
This one doesn't surprise me.

Weeks later the nation was rocked by a second scandal at the Social Security Institute, where officials purportedly awarded a $15m contract for kidney treatments to a company that lacked a license to perform the services; at least 13 patients subsequently died."
This one is shameless criminal behavior imho.
