Alain Le Notre Citadel View Breathtaking Views of Cairo Cityskape
The harvest soup was disappointingly tiny, looking like a mere two spoonfuls of thick stew in a bread bowl. It comprised a pleasing mixture of lentils and vegetables, but was hardly a fair portion. The Thai chicken salad was presented nicely with four strips of chicken with peanut sauce over various fresh veggies of carrots, cabbage, and lettuce, along with crispy hair-thin noodles, and bits of dry crispy flat bread - again, it was good overall but the noodles were a bit strange and the salad was slightly bitter.

Angus Brassiere Argentinean Steak in That 70s Basement
We weren't encouraged when the bread came and was basically mini hot dog buns out of a package.
Thankfully however, the Greek salad was fantastic - a large bowl full of succulent fresh vegetables with clumps of creamy feta style cheese, herbs, and potent olives - and satisfied our veggie craving and then some. The steaks looked more like something off of a backyard grill than what you'd order at a restaurant, but they smelled gorgeous and the barbecue flavours were particularly well captured. (...)
On the Brink in downtown Cairo
(...) While gentrification can be a positive change for both investors and the community alike, as a result, members of the community are often forced to vacate their homes due to the rise of housing prices and property taxes.
Whether it is revival or gentrification, the fate of Downtown's cultural livelihood could possibly be resting in the hands of private investors. While they ensure that they have a solid plan for working with tenants and arranging compensation as well as incentive, there seems to be an underlying concern that the project will, in the end, cater to an exclusive segment of society; changing the entire dynamic of Downtown's space and its magical energy, which flows from the eclectic mixture of people residing and working in the surrounding area.

A Beginners Introduction To German Culture
(...) This structured day also proliferates down to school level where a full day's studying, towards the respected Abitur for older students, has been completed by 2pm.
Given the country's clear divide between work and home life, Germans' professionalism means that most communication errs on the formal side, with the domestic environment very much reserved for family and close friends. In a similar way, greetings are generally more formal with a firm handshake in the traditional style and new acquaintances addressed with their title until invited to do otherwise. (...)
