I would have won the bet but I wish it weren't so

Everyone in Dahab was jubilant about what they saw as the impending regime change; my cabbie on Tuesday bet me 300 pounds they would have a new president by Thursday ("I win, you pay in English; you win, I pay you in Egyptian").

I wonder how much what is going on in Cairo is affecting them on the Red Sea side? I hope they're okay. It seems like a lot of people are willing to put their lives on the line to see this happen. I wish my cabbie's optimism had proven true; everyone I talked to seemed to think it was just inevitable.
