Best of luck with your participation in Shubbak.

As a Londoner who works with Arabic (and other language) translation daily, I'm very glad this festival has been organised. There are so many excellent events and exhibits over the next few weeks.

As I pondered on my blog about London and translation, my office is hoping for a lunch time trip to the wonderful looking Khatt – a display of Noureddine Daifallah's calligraphic art.

I'm pleased to see the exhibition you are contributing to runs at RIBA until September. Plenty of time to come and compare and contrast your images of the public domain with our familiar ones in London.
