Chapter 108 of 280 of Paul Hodge's November, 2012 video book "How to Go Solo Around the World in 47 Days" chronicles the beginning of Paul's four day (May 22 through May 26, 2012) coverage of the first round of the two day, "first-ever" historic Egyptian Presidential election. At great personal risk, Paul covered the election by interviewing Egyptian voters and inspecting diverse polling stations all over Cairo while the voting was taking place. This video focuses on Paul's Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012 twelve hour coverage of the first day of voting for the historic Egyptian Presidential election. The video shows Paul's day starting at 7:00 am with his drive through the crowded Cairo streets to Cairo polling/voting stations in diverse Cairo districts, the voting at the polling stations and the voters' mood during the historic election process. As can be seen from Paul's video, the Egyptian military kept order and ran the voting/polling stations. While all the voters Paul talked to were very excited to be voting, they were cautious not to offend the military which maintained a high, "armed and ready" profile in the Cairo streets. Throughout the two days of voting, there appeared to be little or no violence.

Paul is one of the few people in this World to have explored and adventured around our planet three times in four years and twice in the last six months !!
Throughout his June, 2012, 40,000+ mile adventure, Paul penned incisive, compelling commentaries with fresh perspectives on the socio-economic & political challenges facing the diverse nations/cultures he explored. The commentaries will be expanded upon and incorporated in Paul's upcoming book, See Commentaries at: http://genpolicy.com/blog.
On June 19, 2012, Paul returned from his 47 day solo adventure around our planet. The trip was fantastic because Paul covered seldom viewed events/sites such as riots and protests in Chile, Argentina & Spain, Soweto where South Africa's freedom movement began, gold machines in Abu Dhabi, Jerusalem/the West Bank & the Wailing Wall, the historic Egyptian Presidential elections, up close with Queen Elizabeth & her Diamond Jubilee celebration, the changing of the guard ceremony in Beijing's Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall and many other exciting seldom scene events.
This video book is Paul's second to chronicle his solo adventures around our planet. The book is intended to instruct viewers on how to go around the world solo. By providing the viewer with detailed videos and commentary of his recent June, 2012 World adventure, author Paul Hodge shows what it realistically takes to plan and successfully execute this life changing "bucket list" achievement.
