A car bomb went off this morning outside the Cairo Security Directorate, about 5.5 miles from our house, as the crow flies. I heard the explosion, even with my earplugs in. At least 2 dead and 40 wounded. :( We had an appointment with our doctor at the clinic* where we'll be giving birth; I think today is not the day to do it.
* a few miles away from the police HQ that was bombed.
