Food in Egypt today

Both Anne and Marcy fed me those links about shortages in Egypt. I have to say they come from different classes: I very much doubt the unemployed poor are concerned about ATMs not having money. in them. But then again, they wont tweet it would they? 

"Food prices rising v quickly now. So too petrol & phone cards. But yet to find an ATM in Cairo that has any money left #Egypt"

and later:

"No ATM's making life hard for all but at least we have credit cards. Most Egyptians use cash. Many feeling v much under siege #Egypt "


"People need bread, and I will provide it no matter what. I live nearby and there’s sleeping room in the attic for my employees. Today, we're staying open as long as we have to."
