Reviving Downtown

Cairo, Egypt

I strolled down Mohammad Mahmoud Street and her side streets this afternoon, the first time I’ve been there in daylight, and finally saw the murals people have been talking about there.

“You’re in my eyes, oh Egypt!”plays on a common Arabic endearment.


“I’m Egyptian / I’m Egyptian, Mother of the World / With the passing of time / Peace and love in each person’s hands.”
It’s signed, “25 January: the beginning of Egyptian freedom”

“Raise your head up high….”

“…you’re Egyptian!”

“Oh Lord, protect those who reform!”

“I love my country.”
