Tahrir square was bursting with more than three million people dancing, cheering, and chanting joyfully. Other people in adjacent streets, were honking car horns in a happy rhythm and fireworks lit up the dark winter sky of Cairo. It was an intense joy Egyptians had not experienced in centuries. It was a mix of joy and disbelief that they were able to oust President Hosni Mubarak, who they believed despised them even more than any occupier in their collective memory.
