Middle Eastern geography

you know.......... I realised in conversation tonight, that my knowledge of the middle east and all the countries that make it up, is really pretty shody........... this website however is great fun- why not try it out- match the countries names to their locations on the map!

Hi, this is an interesting blog. Are you Egyptian or just working there?

Is it true that belly dancers in Egypt are not allowed to expose their stomaches?

Anyways, swing by (or should I say 'shimmy on by') my belly dance blog sometime!

Nope- I'm not Egyptain- I am from Scotland- but have been living here in Cairo for 7 months now and teach and perform Egyptian Dance.

Re the stomach thing- the majority of dancer do expose their stomachs, and if you have the correct people in your pay its not a problem, but if you don't pay your backsheesh then the police can fine you for indecent exposure if you bare your stomach. so again- its all about who you know!
