Egypt vs Algeria يوم النصر العظيم

The Egypt vs Algeria match on Thursday night, January 28, 2010, was a sweet revenge for Egyptians. The win has been labeled by media as the Day of the Great Victory (and many more grandiose labels).

The Egyptian masses seem to agree. Immediately after the win, Egyptians amassed in the streets to celebrate. I’ve put together some pictures from that night in Pyramids Street.

And Egyptians chant, “Dance Hadary” referring to Goalie Esam Al-Hadary.


Egyptian team summits Kilimanjaro

On January 29, 2010 at 8:30am, a team of four Egyptian men successfully summited Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak.

The team climbed Kilimanjaro using the Rongai route to reach the mountain’s summit,  Uhuru Peak. They are currently descending by means of the Marangu route. Total duration of their trip is seven days.

The four Egyptians are Mohamed Shokri, 34, Hazem Hashim, 42, Ahmed Azmy, 42, and Isam Ali, 44.

Media interested in contacting the team can get in touch with me.

Congratulations, friends! So happy you made it!!
