To say that my vacation has not gone according to plan would be an understatement. Many have noted it, and I readily agree. That being said, my experiences have still been memorable; ones that can never been duplicated.
On the night of the Egyptian revolution’s success, I again find myself glued to TV news coverage, witnessing history. While similar to the Tunisian people’s celebration, the scale of this change is immense, and has a tremendous regional and global impact. It will be extremely interesting to see what comes from this, and how many more countries in the Middle East/North Africa will follow suit.
Now that I have been on the African continent for 2 social uprisings, not only do I wonder if I will be present for the toppling of other corrupt regimes, I want to see it. It would be a great addendum to my travel story.
