Comments on my cameo are here. My interface by email and phone was largely Rabiya Parekh, right, who claims to have a serious scarf jones.
Raja was one of three Middle-Eastern bloggers, each of whom could ask the Syrian Ambassador to the London one (count it, one) question. That segment is here. It loads a BBC stream interface; no extra plugins needed.
Raja's emotions came from dealing with the ambassador. As he put it:
I was (and still am) a nervous wreck! However, somehow I managed to ask the ambassador some pointed questions. I'm sure my voice was cracking... at some points, I'm also sure I was incoherent... and looking back, I now wish I had said some things that I did not mention.It is a lot easier to plunge the keys than get personal by phone.
My heart rate is like 160 beats a minute!
