on may 17th, 2010, i left for alexandria.  comparing it to cairo, girls seem to be slightly more conservative (in terms of the way they dress), people seem more religious (at least in terms of “outwards” religiosity - there are more bearded men to be seen on the streets), the weather is much nicer, and it’s a lot less crowded.  after nearly a month of being in alexandria, i definitely can say that i like it better than cairo!
