“Protection. Conservation. Restriction. Deep ecology. Give me deep technology any day. They don't scare me. "I'm damned if I'll crawl, my children's children crawl on the earth in some kind a fuckin' harmony with the environment. Yeah, till the next ice age or the next asteroid impact." (Moh Kohn, The Star Fraction)/ "This is the fight between God and the Devil. If His Grace is with God, he must join me, if he is for the Devil he must fight me. There is no third way" King Gustavus Adolphus

The 12th International Youth Gathering for Cultural Exchange

My mother and I were lucky enough to be given invites to the opening ceremony of the 12 International Youth Gathering for Cultural Exchange, which was being held in the Scout Centre, Cairo.

Met some interesting Scouts there, got talking to a lovely Scout from Azerbaijan but they have come from all over, some poor lad had a 53 hr flight from Argentina! but also here is the Maldives, Spain, Italy, Yemen, Oman, Jordan, Egypt, Italy, UK, Seycelles, Kenya, South Africa, Rwanda etc. Also there were the diplomats of Azerbaijan, South Korea, Palestine and the Scouting Represenative for the Africa region plus two professors of Egyptology from the Egyptian Museum.
