A day in the life of a resident. This photo essay is based on life in the dorms. About a year ago I moved to Egypt, after living in Austria for 19 years, hence living in the dorms is an experience within itself and then Egypt is a whole other one. The American University in Cairo offers a stark contrast to what the rest of Egypt offers. Thus, the images taken highlight the exact reason why I came here, that no matter what you do or where you go, it'll always be an adventure! It started off as a normal Friday waking up to the sun shining, until a friend of mine suggested we go to downtown Cairo to study and have coffee, why not? I said... Watch the journey unravel itself in the pictures below and let the authenticity and rawness of Egypt sink in.
