After a brief, relaxing vacation in Amsterdam covering the Cannibus Cup, I decided to skip the flight to NYC home for Thanksgiving and head to Egypt instead. Right now, the Tahrir Square uprising is back and more determined than ever to fuck shit up. In the first 15 minutes of being at the front of a clash between protesters and Egyptian police, someone lifted my camera.(Thanks Hillary Clinton!)

We’ll be offering some live reports — many via Twitter — for as long as they let us stay here. Besides, there are party boats on the Nile that never, ever seem to stop. (Photos/Video: Bucky Turco/ANIMALNewYork)
