Er, I was
there, earlier today. I took a few photos while walking around. It's pretty well amazing to see, even right now while things are relatively quiet.
The protests right now are focused around two traffic islands, where tents are still set up, and protesters have erected billboard-style broadsheets identifying the members of the fallen/falling regime whom they most suspect of enriching themselves through corruption.
The caption at the top says "The heads of corruption will not escape just punishment." Notice that the first three (if you read from right to left like Arabs do) are Hosni, Suzanne, and Gamal Mubarak.
People mill around, listening to orators, taking in the scene, and shopping for patriotic kitsch, which is being hawked by vendors all around the square. (No, I'm not kidding.) In the background, you can see the Mogamma, the central bureaucracy building for Egypt. (Again, I'm not kidding.) When I walked by it this morning, I could see that an entire section of the ground floor had been completely burned: there were scorch marks creeping up from the windows toward the first floor.
Oh, and speaking of scorch marks, take a look at this!
That torched-out husk behind the National Museum of Antiquities used to be the headquarters of the now-defunct National Democratic Party. I never really noticed it when I lived around there, but now it's hard to miss, don't you think?
Finally, I caught a close-up of the subway map on the way home. The station formerly known as "Mubarak" has been re-named "The Martyrs of 25th January." People are taking this change to heart pretty quickly, and rather than wait for the city to dispatch an employee to glue new signs on all the subway cars, people have been writing it in with pens and markers. The name Mubarak
has been papered over, and scrawled over it with a magic marker is the word al-Shuhadā
