My name is Karim which means Generous :P
I was born and lived all my life in Alexandria , Egypt,it's the first Alexandria in the whole world and was named after Alexander the great . I love traveling so much didnt travel much but i love taking lots of photos to every place i go to .
Well educated can speak English easily .Like to show people my city and the off beaten places in it.
that's it .
Some information about my city Alexandria :
Alexandria is a thriving Egyptian port city with a harbour that can be considered one of the most exotic and romantic in the world. It is proud to be known as one of the cleanest cities in all of Egypt, and the mayor has in the recent years channelled huge funds to developing his charge into a tourist class destination. The latest additions to Alexandria include the Royal Hospital and the National Library with original collections that date back to the times of Cleopatra and the Romans.
