What is your favorite city?
Where I was born, Cairo and also here, in Italy, the best cities that I have ever been to, Roma. So Rome and Cairo. The same goes for both, Cairo is a very old city and there is a lot of architecture and old places and the same in Rome, very old things and architecture is very old and it looks amazing, I like it.

What is your dreamjob?
To be a professor in my country, in Cairo University, for tourism which is what I’m studying. I like ordinary, I like something normal, I don’t have a crazy mind to be other stuff. I wanted to be all those other jobs (ex. astronaut, F1 racing driver) when I was young but now I just think about being a professor, something that I dream of. When I was a kid I wanted to be an officer, a police officer. They go out and get thieves, go around the city, they do a lot of things.

What’s your favorite cocktail?
Actually I don’t drink alcohol. In my country we drink tea all the time, so tea is my favorite cocktail.

Starbucks or Italian espresso?
The italian espresso caffe, I feel it’s not so much caffe, just a little bit and it’s very strong.

What’s your favorite dish?
It’s an egyptian one, called Misayah(?). It’s a mix between vegetables and meat. The best way, how I like it, cooked in an oven and very spicy.

What would you rather fight, one horse-sized duck or one hundred duck-sized horses?
I would fight the big one because I like to get one of the best ones. If I get one the biggest ones I would be in his place.
