One of the most amazing, scary and life changing experiences of my life was being present during the Egyptian uprisings in 2011. One of the most poignant stories happened on the first day, January 25th and this post was written to explain the events that led me to hiding out in a building all night long!
As I now blog about travel the post has been moved to the travel site as it’s content, I feel, is more appropriate there. Still I would love if you would go and read it in full and drop me a comment or two!
The full post can be found here “How I Ended Up Back In School On The First Day Of The Egyptian Revolution“ and below is a teaser to entice you to go and read it. All comments from the original posting have been left below.
