Contimplating moving back to Egypt! Any input?
So guys, a quick history on myself. I was born and raised in Alexandria, till i was 14. Then moved to the USA (Michigan) because my father got married to an Egyptian woman that lived in the U.S (My mom and dad were divorced since i was a kid but remained good friends) So i came to the USA, Went into 10Th grade in high school and after high school went to NORTHWOOD UNIVERSITY, My dad then moved back to Egypt, around 1998, and i decided to stay here alone! My mom and dad came and visited a couple of times but i never went back to Egypt till September of 2006, .I was there for a month
I am really thinking of moving back to Egypt. Even with how dirty some places are and how unorganized the country is, and all the negative things i thought about it..I LOVE IT, the warmth of the people there, the smell of Alexandria, the hustle and bustle..All my family and fiends..I just want to go back. People are telling me I'm crazy to want to move back to EGYPT, but something is telling me i need to go back. Its not that easy though, I am the kind of guy that "makes that money, spends that money" I like nice things so i'm always spending money.. so i haven't saved much to be able to go back with allot of Cash. My family isn't Rich but they are Middle Class, i do have some connections in Egypt. All my family is there and i miss them, and since visiting something has been sparked in me, and i do feel there is opportunity to succeed in Egypt.
For work I'm hoping to go back and do something in the Automotive field, and hopefully my Marketing and business knowledge i have acquired in the USA will help me. I have a Business degree, and allot of experience in the Automotive industry, and my strong points are in Sales, Marketing and Advertising.
As for what i want to do for EGYPT itself i have many ideas that i will try to implement, i am just sick of being one of those Egyptians who left their country and complain about it from the comfort of another country. The other day i was listening the old song Ala Baly and it brought tears to my eyes...i put it on the MYSPACE page i made for Egypt
I'm hoping to get some input from some of you guys on my decision to move back
