في قلق في البلد
“Fi 2ala2 fil balad“
Means something like, “People are concerned about today,” and is mainly used when demonstrations are planned. These types of days are associated with various advantages and disadvantages.
-Literally no one will be on the metro or outside anywhere in general – very fast cross-city travel times
-Numerous photo opps with APCs, if you’re into that
-Lots of police with guns all over the place
-Things may or may not blow up
