Ramses Say:

August 25, 2006

Last night, the most amazing thing happened, right next to our hotel. My window looks out on the corner of Sharia 26 July (a main street) and Mohammed Farid. About 1 a.m. people started lining up along the streets and we remembered what we had heard about the Ramses statue being moved to Giza.

An hour later, amongst much cheering from the people in the street and a human chain of police officers, Ramses glided right past my window. It was surreal beyond surreal, to see this ancient statue not 100 feet away from me, being carried by a truck.

The traffic behind Ramses was majorly backed up, as the side streets were completely closed for the past hour.

Hopefully, I can figure out how to put up the video of Ramses coming down the street that I took.
