Downtown Walkabout

On Sunday, the first day of the work week here, I went downtown, through Tahrir Square and around the area to the American University of Cairo.

The debate continues, as you can see from the picture below – Tahrir Square has become a place of public dialogue.  Actually, it feels like, um, ardent public dialogue can break out anywhere, at any moments notice –  everyone is now a political commentator, with lots of years-worth of ideas they have been waiting to get out.  Plus, who doesn’t like a good debate.

Sunday was an exceptional day in Cairo – there were such grand rainstorms that it knocked power out, and the infrastructure took a hit – our internet wasn’t restored until late this afternoon.

Check out the photos at Flickr – I’m still figuring out how to embed the slideshow.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/40944450@N06/
