this is not extremely true because Cairo isn't that polluted right now because new cities are being built which leads to less pollution as many people are moving out.

If you cannot speak English very well, use a different language. Using any language poorly will result in people tuning you out, before even giving what you say a chance. Just FIY.

Cairo is not a place to visit unless you are willing to get sick, air pollution is very bad.

spending a day in Cairo is the same as smoking half a pack of cigarettes on a good day, (WHO)
