Walking down the streets of Downtown Portland, Star and I came across a group of Arab Americans celebrating the end of Mubarak’s oppressive rule of Egypt.
We looked at each other, broke out our equipment, and instantly began snapping photos and recorded the people cheering and chanting.
It was on the most impromptu journalistic experience I have ever experienced; I mean, we were supposed to be on a date, and before you know it, we were hustling and bustling amidst a celebratory crowd demanding democracy for Egypt.
Hope you enjoy it.
