Thanks for coming to YearinCairo.com.  I started this site as a window into the sites, sounds, and ideas relevant to life in Cairo.  I hope to give a well-rounded perspective of Egypt’s capital, focusing not only on the ongoing revolution, but also the diverse neighborhoods, communities, and activities that define Cairo’s vibrant culture.

Absolutely all content is original, and may be used with attribution.

As for me, I’m a 23-year-old New Yorker who graduated from Dartmouth College in 2010 with a degree in Religion and Arabic.  After studying abroad in Cairo during the fall of 2008, I knew I wanted to come back to this great city, and felt further compelled by recent events to return.

In addition to producing YearinCairo.com, I write and manage content for AslanMedia.com.  You can follow me on twitter @wilroth.

Please feel free to leave any comments or questions you may have, and enjoy!
