Cairo Protests and unrest.

Discussion in 'Teaching abroad' started by vehar, Dec 23, 2011.

  1. I haven't had difficulty in texting to friends/family in Ismailiya. When they went in to Cairo, they just avoided Tahrir Square. The unrest isn't universal, but it's pretty disturbing.... did you see THAT VIDEO? The military really do seem to have lost it...

    I'm in west Cairo about 25km from Tahrir. Yes, what's happening in Tahrir is terrible, yet it is geographically confined.

    Tahrir is smaller than Trafalgar Square and most of the rest of the country is basically normal.

    I have 3 mobiles - one for each Egyptian network - and they're all working fine, and as you can see, I'm on the internet.

    How long have you been trying to contact them?
