Chaotic traffic, people crossing from all directions, but life carries on. So much history to remember and reminisce! Worth a visit.

This expansive square was the site of protests. The traffic is crazy here. We walked from the Cairo Museum & held our breath crossing the street.

I was in Cairo earlier in the year and walked around Tahrir Square on my own both during the day and at night. I have visited there several times. There are many shops nearby and some major hotels. I found it very safe.
