I can’t really say much other than the atmosphere is pretty much like this:
Dignitaries are arriving, journalists are swarming, and roads are gridlocked. But there’s just an unadulterated and overwhelming feeling of joy cascading around the city.
This isn’t even my independence (and for god’s sake I’ve been here less than 6 months), but just walking out on the streets is almost enough to move me to tears.
Will update as I can, but computer access will be limited. Should be an epic 48 hours.
It’s GO TIME!
