As a follow up to our report on the 28th, it seems that Egypt restored Internet service yesterday.  In the aftermath of this event, it is even more obvious how important it is to have important information at your fingertips and with others.  When trying to manage an evacuation, it really helps if your passport number, country and expiration date, birth date, full name, gender, cell phone number, email address, current location and desired destination are stored with your travel agent, school’s program director, immediate family member contact, etc.

Don’t count on the Internet and other communication services to be up and running from the epicenter of whatever situation you find yourself in.  Be prepared.
