Lima. The cloudiness would probably make it feel way better.

Lima's climate is depressing. The sunnier season isn't all that sunny either.

Yuck to both- Cairo is wayyyy to hot and both climates are way too dry. Prolly Lima for having more comfortable temperatures. I don't mind visiting hot climates but I wouldn't want to live in one.

Cairo by far. I'm actually more surprised that's it's not any hotter, given its desert location.
Lima is too gloomy year round - a waste of warmth!

Lima even when it's too gloomy. Cairo is too hot.

Lima. Overcast skies don't bother me at all, and the temperatures are great

It's like an A vs a C grade for me.

Interesting, maybe the two driest capitals in the world battling. I will go with Lima.

Cairo has more seasonal variation and a tiny bit more rainfall. Also, if it's not going to rain then it may as well be sunny, so Cairo it is.
