Another January …

The classical resolutions one more time, so apart from starting this Blog to record my journeys, I'll spare you the rest cause you undoubtedly have a few of them yourself.

Why the name? Perhaps because in my culture the Balcony was the first means of exchange of information ... long before internet. Also, because this word reads almost the same in Egyptian dialect (the word is not of Arabic origin) as in Spanish, the language I identify myself with. However, I write in English because most of my friends who are scattered around the globe would understand it, and that's the whole point of a balcony, sharing over a good cup of coffee.

Needless to say, C&C are welcome.

Oh and you can email me for tips on any of the places marked on my travel map.
