Friends and family,
We wanted to give you a quick update as to our situation in Cairo. We are very safe. The protests and skirmishes that you may have seen in the news are occurring in a completely different section of the city. The majority of the unrest has taken place in Heliopolis which is even further away from us than Tahrir Square.
Zamalek, where we live, is a very quiet and well-to-do neighborhood. Our tour company as well as the staff at our AUC dormitory are very helpful and interested in our well-being and safety. We feel very secure in our current situation.
This is a difficult time for all Egyptians and we eagerly anticipate the day when all neighborhoods of Cairo are as peaceful as Zamalek.
