Thank you for your album. I was in the monastry of St. Paul close to the Red Sea in 1992 and 2001; it has changed a lot since then, as I see on your pictures!
Also this monk was living somewhere completely different. Do you know if he is in St. Paul normally or was he there justfor a visit? Do you remember his name?
I have read on your profile that you live in Berlin. If you prefer not to answer (for safety reasons, not everybody likes the members of the Coptic church) then please le us meet personally in Berlin. I will be stay there starting in July.
