The party was at a lovely home full of art from all over the world. Here are some photos from the party.
In other news, some of you have asked me what current events are happening. One of the big things is that there are elections coming up this month. The date was recently set for November 28.
If you would like to read some of the election coverage in the newspapers here, I'm providing you a link to the Egyptian Gazette, which is the paper we get delivered to our home:
This election is only for Parliament with the presidential election scheduled for next year.
One interesting thing discussed in this BBC online article ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-11589354 ) is that 64 of the 508 seats up for election in Parliament will be reserved for women. The time frame for advertising campaigns of candidates and political parties set by the Higher Election Commission (the group that sets election rules) is November 14-26, ending two days before the election.
