“We’re not celebrating! We’re resuming our revolution!”
That was the spirit today! The scene was breath-taking, not only at Tahrir square, which was “stuffed” with people, but also at every nearby street and square, as well as most of the Egyptian cities! People marched everywhere demanding the SCAF to step down and aiming to confirm how absurd any celebration before “avenging our martyrs” would be.. I so longed to be there, but my VERY overprotective mother forbade me to go!
Here are my favorite shots for today:
# Marching in Alexandria!
# A huge march crossing “Qasr El Nile” bridge to Tahrir!
# Tahrir today!
# Tahrir, just before sunset!

As long as authorities keep oppressing, murdering and stealing our rights, all the photos I capture are going to portray marches and protests..
Last Wednesday and the day after, I marched to the Ministry of Defense, protesting against SCAF‘s brutal crimes and killing our colleagues along with thousands of students from many colleges, chanting “Down with SCAF” and demanding them to “LEAVE”!
# Here’s how the SCAF secured the building:
Because killers always hide..
# Girls hugely took part in the protest:

It’s been like forever since I last had a perfect mini-vacation. My last 4 days were beyond perfect! 😀
Spending a good time with my family whether indoors or hanging out, enjoying the terrific scenes of Cairo was exactly what I needed to get out of the ordinary routine of college. My sister & I have captured HUNDREDS of photos. I’ve been shuffling through the pics for hours before finally settling on these!
#Al-Masah Hotel & Spa:
Green areas are endless in there, it’s the right place for kids, for a barbecue and even for meditating-nature-lovers! 🙂
#Wandering with a “Nile Bus”:
I’m sorry they haven’t yet invented cameras to capture the soothing Autumn breeze!!

Widest part of the Nile.

Staying in UAE gives you a very lucky chance to capture memorable photos. Now that I’m back home, I thought of bringing up some memories. Here’s my favorite collection, shot by my friends except the 1st one; I shot it myself. 🙂
Abu Dhabi Flagpole; one of the top highest flagpoles in the world.
Dubai’s famous “Burj Khalifa”; world’s tallest structure. I hate that I had no chance to get to the top!
“Burj Khalifa”; night view.
“Burj Al Arab Hotel”; Dubai’s most popular 5-star luxury hotel.
Dubai Mall Aquarium; the scene there was marvelous! I took this pic from Google ’cause our shots weren’t clear at all.
