The guide described by The New York Times as "indispensable," newly researched and completely rewritten for 2011, fills a vital niche for expatriates and Cairenes alike who need a helping hand to organize-and enjoy-the challenges of a sojourn in Cairo. The basics of daily life-finding a flat, transporting personal goods, investigating school options for children, navigating Egypt's famous bureaucracy, and the intricacies of feeding and clothing oneself and one's family from the local market-are all detailed here. Advice gathered from a wide range of Cairo insiders, both native and foreign, gives the reader a cornucopia of current facts on prices, neighborhoods, product availability, work and business opportunities, and the dizzying range of cultural and leisure pursuits that Cairo is famous for. Cairo: The Practical Guide, now in its seventeenth edition, is the key to deciphering the complexities of living, working, and enjoying life in one of the world's most exciting and dauntingly complex mega-cities.
Lesley Lababidi is the author of Cairo's Street Stories: Exploring the City's Statues, Squares, Bridges, Gardens, and Sidewalk Cafes (AUC Press, 2008), and Cairo: The Family Guide.
