A People’s Revolution

For the past week, we have been following the historical events in Egypt.  At every hour, people at work are gathered in the lunchroom watching Al Jazeera’s coverage of the people protests across Cairo, Alexandria, Suez, Sinai – discussing what will happen next.   Since Friday it has been most chaotic – my boss left for Cairo on Thursday and since then hasn’t had email access as all internet and some mobile services have been cut off by the government.

Today, I commented on how Mubarek looks like he’s in good condition for an eighty plus year old.. my Egyptian colleague rightly stated “So he should – he has been eating all the food of the Egyptian people for the last 30 years”.

Let’s hope people power proves strong enough to see some real changes.
