Sunset over the rooftops in central Cairo in on November 23, 2012; the same day that millions of Egyptians protested less than a mile away in Tahrir Square. The colorful, almost calming sunset contrasts with the violence that took place in the streets below. With the proliferation of satellite dishes covering almost all of the available space on the rooftops, it's clear that the old adage "The Revolution will not be Televised" has become an anachronism!

Location: Central Cairo, Egypt
