I use to live off Gameat el Dowal and when it gets really crazy, you can't even cross the road. It was terrifying during Ramadan!That was for me the same! We came from Hurghada, and I had to go to Zamalek first. That was all ok, but then Ahmed Orabi and Gameat el Dowal! Terrible!! At that time I didn't know the way through the neighborhood.
We live in a side street of Gameat el Dowal, it is now already very busy with Egyptians waving the flag and then other cars stop in the middle of the street to make a party together!
