Today was the fifth anniversary of the revolution at Tahrir Square in 2011. It is a national holiday and along with most foreigners (and many Egyptians) I stayed inside all day. I took this time to prepare for Argentina, do some research, a listen to a little bit of Bossanova. This version of Aguas de Marco is my favorite, and I was introduced to it an art history professor who taught my Latin American Art and politics class at Rice my first semester. This song is about the beauty of rain in Brazil, and this is appropriate because the one time Julianna left the house today to visit a kiosk to buy some lemons, it started pouring-something somewhat rare here.
I also did some final searching to make sure that I visited all the significant cemeteries in Cairo as I prepare to leave. It looks like I hit most of them according to BillionGraves.com- the one website that actually has maps to locate all the different cemeteries in Egypt.
