When we see demonstrations or protests, it gets the adrenalin pumping, hearts beating and curiosities ka ka klumping...but can I risk a shot?
Tahrir Square in Cairo, 5 days after Mubarak went down...is a souvenir I won't forget!
Was today in Angkor Wat...my first visit there was back in summer 1997....less than a week after the military coup...they were selling....20 tickets....per day! Very different feeling these days...

Tahrir Square 5 days after the fall oF Mubarak Peter? Can't even imagine what that would be like.
Mine have been more next-door experiences.
In Bamako, Mali when the coup started in Cote D'Ivoire, stayed then in the Radisson Blu that had two recent terrorist attacks, in Timbuktu only months before the Islamists took over the town destroying tombs, relics and ancient learning.
In Ethiopia and heard the start of the Arab Spring in Tunisia shaking the airwaves.
In Dubai while the israelis were bombing Gaza.
The feeling of the quiet before the storm then the world around us changing into disquiet...eery being there...oh so glad we were not next door!
