The square has emptied out since the afternoon but it’s still a great atmosphere, a sense of solidarity, and very well-behaved – people are sitting around bonfires, or walking around picking up rubbish.

We’re happy to be eating koshary – thank goodness vendors are still selling street food because we’re starving.
