Crosstown Traffic


Yesterday, Cairo traffic was its usual crazy self. The occasional demo had to swim through the middle of it.

Today, the streets are almost empty. It’s a holiday, but also a day of uncertainty. Hundreds of thousands are already in Tahrir or on their way there. Many more are staying home.

I’m going for a stroll to find some lunch.

    Very interesting contrast. There’s a gravitational pull at Tahrir — everyone is drawn there which empties everywhere else. Hope all is well.

    Wasn’t yesterday an anniversary of the beginning of the revolution? hence the focus on Tahrir?
