خنازمالك: الى قلب الظلام

An intrepid reporter from TBE visited ground zero of Egypt’s swine flu pandemic today, despite the all-too-real possibility of contracting the lethal influenza. A number of police and bemasked dormitory workers were visible. No shirtlessness or brazen card playing could be seen from TBE’s perch outside the dormitory’s marble-and-mashrabiyya façade. 

A trip to Seoudi market did provide some clues to the mood prevailing along Pig’s Alley. Some workers had donned swine flu masks, while others appeared unconcerned. In particular, the grocery-bagging area and personal care sections are hotbeds of flu prevention activism, while the meat, cheese and bread sections are bastions of bravado, seemingly immune to the slings and arrows of outrageous influenza.

TBE would like to express our apologies in advance for the video’s low quality. Extenuating circumstances meant that we were only able to record using a cell phone camera.
