Egypt through the eyes of a postman

Ashraf Zareef Ibrahim says people will return to Cairo's Tahrir Square if they are cheated.

    With an intimate knowledge of our neighbourhoods, postmen and women are often the first to notice the changes occurring on the streets.

    He continued to do so every day during the protests that shook his country for the first time in decades.
