Site Update (July 07) - I have just rolled out a new blog, on It's my way of sharing some of my interests in a new and more flexible, interactive format. See it here: Mike Dorsey's Blog

I am living in Egypt for one year and studying Middle East Affairs at the American University in Cairo. Fully funded by the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholars Program, I am responsible for speaking to local Rotary clubs and I will continue studying the Arabic language.
Living in Cairo, near the Nile, 15 minutes from Pyramids, lots of studying...
Sunsets over Sinai, scuba diving certification with Joan, weekend trips with Egyptian host family.
I have a reasonable apartment in the center of downtown Cairo - it is a great location and fairly comfortable. Click here to see more.

With the support of Rotary International, various scholars, clubs, and donors have supported African Hope School for Sudanese refugees in Cairo, Egypt. Click here for details.
