I was very honoured to be in Egypt
at the time of the revolution.
I was unable to get to Cairo until two
days after Mubarak stepped down.
When I arrived there, I was welcomed
to the massive non-stop celebrations
that continued for several days.
I had expected to find a city in chaos
and destruction and was impressed to
see the youth painting walls, railings,
street markings, cleaning, and
directing traffic - I’d never seen the
city centre so tidy!
Over the next few weeks the
celebrations continued the Egyptian
flag was everywhere or painted.
