My wife and I have been watching the events in Cairo closely the last couple of weeks, and it has been very exciting to see the mostly peaceful revolution a success so far. I'm eager to see what positive changes this will bring for their country, as well as how these demonstrations across the region might change the Middle East as we know it.
Our short time spent in Cairo last Spring taught quickly us how passionate the people are there. Easily the kindest, most genuine, and gracious people we've met in any city also. Our apartment was in a tucked away neighborhood, far from any tourist centers. The people told us that they rarely see American tourists in their quiet neighborhood and wished us the warmest welcome, were always smiling, and made our stay there most memorable.
Truly amazing people. Good luck to you Egypt!
