I would suggest the Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina area as well. There are numerous universities in the metro area, and the area is big in the IT and medical fields.

Albuqueque seems like a good fit too, especially if you are looking for low humidity like you may be used to in Egypt.

By the way, I've been to Cairo and definitely know how croweded it is. I arrived at 2am and was amazed at how much traffic there was at that hour. On the positive, as an American, I was treated very well.

To expound on my answer, I think you would like cities like Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, and Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill.
I dont know what Lubbock is like, but as for changing cairo we actually want a quieter place to live in, but not TOO quiet, as I mentioned before.

Lubbock is not a bad place, but it would maybe take a little getting used to. It is a city of about 230,000 people and growing, but is not a large metropolitan area. It is out in west Texas out toward New Mexico.

It does have a major university in Texas Tech, and a few small schools that are tied with the churches. It is very affordable and fairly safe, and has low unemployment, which is rare in the US right now.

One big thing about Lubbock is while the city is very self sufficient and has everything a person would need, it is many hours away from any larger city. It is very flat and out in what will feel like the middle of no-mans land.

Weather in Lubbock can vary greatly, with large temperature swings. But it rarely gets bitterly cold and they don't get a lot of snow. The average winter high is somewhere around 50F. The low humidity can cause temps to go from 50F to 95F from morning to afternoon in the summer. They do get some severe thunderstorms in the Spring, but so does a lot of the eastern 2/3 of the US. The one weather characteristic that stands out is the wind. Lubbock can be a very windy city.
