Many Egyptian-Americans living in the Washington area continue to voice their support for the protesters in Cairo and other parts of the country.
For the second day in row, demonstrators met outside the White House to press for change.
For protesters gathering outside the White House Sunday, the chaos and uncertainty of whats going on in Egypt is very real.
Some of these protesters say its been days since they last spoke with their family and friends living in Egypt.
And they say these protests here in Washington are their way of staying connected.
"That's the least thing I can do -- come here and protest," says Ahmed, a jeweler from Bel Air, Md. "I will be here every day until Mubarak gone -- even if I am here by myself.
It was a more subdued atmosphere at Queens Caf, an Egyptian hookah bar in Adams Morgan. While the televisions are tuned to soccer, server Amir Alamehdi says the protests are on everyone's mind.
"A lot of people are talking," says Alamehdi. "They're saying, 'The government's no good,' and they want to change it."
Shaking his head, Alamehdi says of the government, "they have to move, they have to go."
