CEDEJ blogs

Vincent Battesti, a French anthropologist who just left Cairo after over three years studying green spaces and gardens here, is keeping a blog of his journey from Cairo to Istanbul on the CEDEJ's blog. It's also worth checking out the CEDEJ site overall--it's full of interesting research information, articles, publications etc... And throughout Ramadan they're having a documentary night every Sunday. All of this is in French, of course.
