“We’re not gonna protest…”

So I obviously missed yesterday, and I do have a valid excuse.  There was a pretty major demonstration in the middle of the city, right around where all the friendly opposition coalition members are camped out in front of the capital buildings.  Get this, the demonstration was on March 11, which falls directly between March 8 and March 14.  March 8 is the day that there was a rather large pro Syrian demonstration in 2005, following the assassination of Hariri.  Then March 14th was the now famous Cedar Revolution, or at least the most visible demonstration during that time.  It was a month exactly after the assassination, and that’s when all the anti-Syrian folks took to the streets.  This year, a bunch of people decided to get together on March 11 to advocate as a group against anymore demonstrations that might lead to violence.  Yes, that’s right, they protested against further protests.  For those of you who have not yet seen PCU please do.

Anyway, here’s the route for today, just 4, tried to loop it again. Still a bad idea.

Going South tomorrow. Hopefully be back soon to tell you all about it. Peace.
