It was a day recently in May, the Egyptian sun was warm and bright and the air was calm as tourists moved back and forth between excursion buses to the ship that was docked in the port city of Alexandria.
Fast forward to today and the calm changes to storm as news from Alexandria coming over the wires tells a different story:
"... deadly clashes erupted in the port city of Alexandria, where protesters set fire to the Brotherhood’s headquarters. Security officials said that one victim was a United States citizen, a man who was stabbed to death near the headquarters." Source: New York Times
