What's happening in Egypt?
If you've any interest in Egypt you will know today is pretty momentous. It is 1 year since President Morsi was elected to power and in the past few days leading up to today there have been huge demonstrations and protests both by pro-Morsi and pro-Tamarod (rebellion). What will enfold is not for me to say or guess. I hope the best outcome for Egypt in whatever form it will take.
On my OldbagofCairo facebook page, I am posting various live links and other information which may be useful for those of you living in Egypt or those of you worrying about friends or relatives in Egypt.
I have also added an administrator from outside Egypt (my friend One Fleeting Glimpse) in case the internet disappears so she can update the page if necessary. Posts I make to the FB page also go out via twitter automatically if that suits you better. @OldbagofCairo. There is also a panel on the right hand side of this page with snippets of the posts.
Please remember NO POLITICS and NO RELIGION. I am attempting to keep the page clean from taking sides and only posting things of relevant to you as foreigners in the country.
My biggest piece of advice - STAY WELL AWAY FROM ANY DEMONSTRATIONS AND PROTESTS - there have been nasty incidents already involving foreigners.
