Tahrir Square, A Year Later

Tahrir Square and the immediate neighborhood have changed many times over the past eighteen months. Where tanks once presided, flags now fly. Where soldiers once crouched behind shields, vendors now sell tea and roasted corn. And along Mohamed Mahmoud Street magnificent graffiti murals like the one above by artist Alaa Awad document different moments in Egypt’s recent turbulence.
