Things always seem worse in the evening.
The biggest news today is the outbreak of fighting between pro-Mubarak and pro-democracy protesters. The assumption is that Mubarak's government arranged or encouraged this situation, which is very sad because before now this was largely a peaceful protest. I don't feel like these people deserve to be attacked. This is a whole new level of chaos, so sad and so wrong!
On the brighter side (kind of), today we were able to make a plan for evacuation, in case things ever get to that point. We still feel perfectly safe here and are counting on sticking it out, but it helps to know there's a back-up plan.
Hopefully we'll remain online, so stay tuned for more updates. See the previous blog for an account of the last few days.
