Thanks, Ted, et al.

It was an amazing time to be there. When Mubarak fell, I changed my plans
and flew to Cairo. For the first four days, I felt like the only foreigner
in the country. People were amazing and open and gracious and also
incredibly wary and angry and distrustful. I did run into numerous issues.
You'll notice the complete lack of seriously devout Muslims in my series.

And interestingly, everyone kept asking if I was a "free" photographer,
meaning not a photojournalist. A lot of distrust against the news media.

And lastly on a selfish note, going to the pyramids after a revolution is
like going to Disneyworld and finding only five other people there.
