The weather is getting hotter by the second...
Yay, it's almost summer; beaches and pools, no more schools, and water gun duels. Yeah, we did the rhyme on purpose. Chalk it up to our giddiness about the advent of warm weather. But seriously people, can there be anything more important than cooling down by going for a swim in this heat? We know that not everyone can make the trip out to Sukhna or the North Coast every single weekend or that random mid-week day you were 'sick', but you would be surprised at the variety of local places with accessible pools right here in Cairo. Because the heat is difficult enough to deal with, don’t exhaust yourself researching; we made a list for you below.
