More Interviews to Come!

See also

Typically its a very easy thing to convince an Egyptian to share their opinions. Lately however, this too has changed. I've been attempting to bring you interviews with locals so that you'd be able to hear about what's happening here without the media filter. I've been targeting what I would call 'moderate' characters, avoiding the extremists from both ends of the spectrum. And while the bulk of society does fit into this middle ground, there's very few who really want to talk about the situation anymore. The initial revolutionary passion has settled into a general malaise. Exasperation holds sway. Resignation seems unavoidable.

I'll keep trying. In many ways these days are an improvement for most, in the sense that the downward spiral has stalled. Daily life is continuing. Protests are quite predictable and reasonably calm. Tourism has not returned. Power and water outages have. Traffic is crap and staying at home is still the predominant choice for this traditionally outgoing and social community.

Hopefully I'll have more to share with you soon. In the meantime, enjoy some of the natural drama that the winter weather has brought to the city: clouds!
