Cairo, Egypt – Trip Summary (by Adam Goodwin)

Cairo, Egypt

Cairo, Egypt

Welcome to Cairo.  Welcome to Egypt.  It is difficult walking down a street (any street) in Cairo without an Egyptian saying this to you.  My third trip to Cairo, Egypt was no different.

Cairo is one of the most cosmo and metro cities in the world.  It bridges Europe, Asia, and Africa with a strong American popular culture influence on the rise as many young Egyptians love watching and mimicking Hollywood movies – it’s hard to get some to understand, Americans (or Canadians) really don’t live how they are portrayed in many of the action-packed videos making it to Cairo.
