Egypt, Revolutionary Dispatches

Revolution KFC

Returned about an hour ago from Tahrir square. We were a mixed group of Egyptians and foreigners, while we were told by an army officer near our house that we could not go in, when we tried from the next street we were ushered in with little problem after they were convinced that we were not journalists.

We were met by a friend with koshari to eat (a very typical Egyptian fast food) and everyone was laughing and taking pictures of us seated on the ground eating it because the Egyptian media has been saying that foreigners are instigating the protests and that KFC is feeding the demonstrators… so our “KFC” was a hit. People were all smiles to see us, admittedly a little amazed that we are still here in Cairo, but happy about it. The feeling in Tahrir is that victory is very close. The topics of conversation now are what will happen next: what shape will the government take and which groups will have power? Mubarak leaving is just a matter of time.
