In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

Egypt is a Muslim country and there is a large percentage of christens as well. They live in harmony for the most part. Most people like expects and as long as you don’t offend any one you will be fine.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

There are international schools in here American, French, and German and if you have the right qualification they really pay well. There are several American companies in here and they work with government contracts. I don’t recommend coming over without having a job first.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Little bit of everything, I have to say soccer is a big dell here.
