Egypt: Deserted Cairo Streets

“Friday usually the streets are crowded but today there wasn't any crowded streets ,a strange thing for sure ,it only happens in Eid or in Ramadan before the breakfast by 5 minutes.
“Where are the people ?? I asked myself , yet I remember tomorrow Saturday is the big day , the scariest day,the day the general secondary certificate exams will start , the third stage of the general secondary stage “don't even ask about that silly name” will begin across the country,” reports Zeinobia from the deserted streets of Cairo.
