AUC is a private University. On one side it was a new experience for me. Housing were out of campus but through University. Excellent location and staff. Maybe rules too stiff.

Favorite place to hang out all night smoke sheesha is Aruba cafe located of the 24th of July street. Favorite all night breakfast eatery, Roy County Kitchen, Can't get any more American than that in a foreign place. Many wonderful night spent there. Its located in the Cairo Marriot... Where the Casino are located also. There is also a few great night spots in Mahandessen but they are sort of underground. So you got meet the right people.
