I’m Mia Gröndahl, a Swedish journalist who has shared my life the last 20 years between Sweden (Österlen) and the Middle East (Jerusalem/Cairo). I am a culture correspondent at Helsingborgs Dagblad, reporting from Egypt and the Middle East, and a columnist at Skåne Media’s newspapers Ystads Allehanda, Trelleborgs Allehanda and Kristianstadsbladet, contributing with columns that try to build a bridge between ”home and abroad”. If you are interested in texts I wrote before 2011, they can be found at my old blog: Mias Kairoblogg

I’ve never been interested in making a career or money, for that matter; my only driving force is a strong curiosity in finding out what’s going on, whether it’s happening at home or abroad. I have a special interest in graffiti and street art; and I’m passionate about roses, especially their heritage and relation to man through history. If you happen to share any of these interests, I can recommend a visit to the web sites below.
