Egypt’s Geography

Here’s a 4-minute video that shows where places such as Tahrir Square and the Rabaa al-Adawiya Mosque and Cairo University are located.

This is a link to the 10-minute TED Talk by Wael Ghonim that I mention in the video.  It’s from March, 2011, just after President Hosni Mubarak resigned from office.  I found it amazing at the time that this talk from Cairo, Egypt, was online and available to the world within a few days of when it was delivered.
