This is not a Muslim blog…but…it can be a great resource when studying Muslim countries. Here’s the mission statement of Carolyn McIntyre’s blog:
Using the journey of a 14th century Moroccan who traveled throughout the entire Islamic world of his time as the inspiration and starting point, I will set out alone through the Islamic world of the 21st century. Meeting and talking to people who live there and using each region’s history, culture, art, architecture, food, music, and traditions, I will emphasize the commonality we share as humans regardless of race, color or religion. I will present an honest and insightful look at the lives and role(s) of women and will establish myself as a source of information for those wishing to learn more about the region.
