Hundreds of thousands in Tahrir Square where ready for an explosion of joy and happiness, but it all ended in a climax of anger directed towards President Mubarak. In his speech, in which he was expected to announce his stepping down as President of Egypt, he waffled on about changes they were discussing, giving some power to his number 2 and about how he wanted people to go back to work. The people became angry, the shoes came out and they’ll be back in Tahrir Square today on a day they are dubbing Farewell Friday.
