What do you like about El Qahirah (Cairo)?
Historic (the metropolis includes Giza with its Pyramids through many ages up to present day); very nice people to balance the very silly which are present everywhere; good winter weather; people are funny.

What do you dislike about El Qahirah (Cairo)?
Government doesn't care about maintenance nor law etc. Roads are not well kept. Hot summers. Poverty. Ignorance. One-mindedness of the people and lack of appreciation of the beauty and history of the country.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
City center, Zamalek (island in the nile), Maadi.

How expensive is it?
Middle middle class lives on a US$200:US$400-income. You can live very happily with a budget of US$1000+, including rent, car expenses, travel, etc. Oil prices increased last week 30% to become 130pt a liter (=US$0.23) so I guess it's pretty inexpensive.

Is it safe?
Safest major city I know of (definitely safer than European capitals, for instance).

How is the weather?
Hot summer, warm winter. Humidity in some places.
