Summary: Viva la Revolucion!
Rachel had a Negroni, Ana Marie sipped an Old Fashioned, and Richard, via Skype, upheld the honor of hard-drinking newsmen throughout history by taking a deep slug from a shiny silver hip flask.
The story was far from over, but now was the time to drink a toast to the Egyptian people. Rachel had invited Ana Marie, because it had impossible for them to get together while the crisis was unfolding. Who better to share an international cocktail moment with?
Except one person was missing and it was up to Rachel to say it out loud.
“Keith should be here.”
