I have been missing Zaha‘s openings recently. Too much work and too much travel. So, when I got my invite for her latest opening of her Guangzhou opera house, I decided to go even if it was very far. And I am happy I did. Apart from my various exciting Chinese adventures, past and future — Beijing is still to come — I was thrilled to finally see one of Zaha’s spectacular buildings in real life.
Everyone is celebrating in Egypt (well, not Mubarak and his cohort!!) and many must be dancing. It is a momentous day, for the Egyptians and for the rest of the Arab world. And to celebrate with the Egyptians, I am turning to one of their greatest stars and my favourite belly dancer, Tahiya Carioca. Mabruk Egypt and mabruk to the Egyptian people. You make us all proud :).
