I was looking at this NY Times article, and noticed how passionate the Egyptians are at electing their President. Whether you’re nervous or not about the Muslim Brotherhood, they certainly are passionate in the pictures. Middle Eastern pictures always strike me in how much emotion is displayed seemingly regularly. Definitely not a Western trait. As I was struck, I decided to put this side by side comparison together.
Of course I know we were excited, but Americans tend to be more moderate in showing emotion…the British background I suppose. I just thought this was interesting.
