And that’s why I rushed to check on twitter with the hastag #Cairo to find out what is going when my friend left a message on my facebook wall saying “all I can say is I’m happy you didn’t take the latest bus in Cairo yesterday.”
I couldn’t find anything on twitter regarding a bus scare in Cairo, but I did find these tweets regarding student protests in Cairo. Check out the links for more.
I’ve since whatsapped a friend in Cairo and this is what he had to say about the situation: “the whole thing about the students is they were trying to delay the midterm exams but they couldnt do it.”
Me and Miriam might still carry on with our plans to spend New Years Eve in Egypt!… Stay posted x
