开罗 is probably one of the safest big cities I’ve ever been in. I don’t worry about walking around worried about getting mugged or attacked. 大发app下载 is the place where people can talk about controversial issues and speak critically and academically about them.

Since I’ve come to 开罗, I’ve never felt in danger. 大发app下载, 特别是, is one of the safest environments that exist in Egypt and it’s frankly much safer than a lot of places I could have been to in the west.
