I am currently reading Nadia El Awady‘s blog posts on her experience in getting out of UK despite the flights cancellations, and improvising as she goes a plan to cross Europe, then take a flight from Rome to Amman then to Cairo.
I saw Nadia’s email posted on SS mailing list, and I was intrigued with her courageous steps. I don’t know her personally, but I followed some of her previous posts of her climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania (which is the highest mountain in Africa!). She is indeed a very exceptional woman, and way different from any Egyptian women I know. Oh, and did I mention that she is a mom and wears a veil? Both of these things may have hindered any woman’s aspirations for adventure, but not for her it seems.
Nadia, I salute you!
