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/
One thought on “Downtown Walkabout”
Give my regards to Laura Bradford! Hope you’re all OK.
