Tear gas from the nearby demonstrations wafted into our Sa'ad Zaghloul apartment, forcing us to open the windows. My roommates cut open some onions and recommended that I eat them, saying they would help against the effects of the tear gas.
We saw smoke rising from nearby Qasr Al-Ainy street. My friend Hatem told us that it was a burning couch and tires. Despite all this, I still went out for dinner with a friend and tea with another. When I returned on the metro, the tear gas was very strong at Sadat Station. Several men on the platform were peddling face masks for 1LE each. And a number of their fellows Egyptians bought from them eagerly. Stay tuned...
