Letter to the Editor: A Capital of Fence

TBE occasionally gets mail. A correspondent recently sent us this missive, which we’ve decided to publish. All views expressed are those of the author and do not necessarily represent the views of TBE’s editorial board.

Dear TBE,

Not to get all Seinfeld on you, but what is the deal with the proliferating fences in Midan Tahrir? I feel like every time I walk in the area lately I’ve been corralled to a new and even more distant location to which I had no intention of going. This would make sense if the fences terminated at logical street-crossing locations, but they often don’t. Instead they rather unceremoniously drop one far from one’s intended destination, with no better, and often worse, prospects for crossing the street. The move seems calculated to force more, not less, people to walk on the street, in one of the few areas of the city where sidewalks are both abundant and level.

Yours truly,
