I am leaving Saturday for ONE week…so I won’t be able to post new things.

I’ll be participating IN ARABIC …a good thing but I feel that It is going to be hard sometimes to remember all the words…I don’t practice the language for a long time.

I took some private lessons in Arabic with Prof. Georges Khouri and took a long look to the on line translation’s sites.! both helped me a lot to improve and flow again in a language I used to speak very very well.!It seems that Amman has a lot of arqueological sites too! but no time for tourism ūüė¶

I am going to give a workshop for social workers…participate n a summer camp visit and give a short approach on some psychosocial aspects in hemophilia in a meeting with the experts andpeople with hemophilia and family. I love Arabic…I find it a very rich language and a funny one too. I used to laugh a lot in Egypt…people have a very good sense of humour!!

I apologize if i don’t post ….I invite you all to re-read or discover old “entries”.


Caros amigos da rede blood4, vou me ausentar por uma semana √° trabalho pela World Federation of Hemophilia participar de um Symposium e minha parte ser√° dar um workshop para assistentes sociais e acompanhar um acampamento de jovens…vai ser legal…mas √© t√£o loooonge!

at√© semana que vem! ūüôā se Deus quiser!
