lotus-smallThe Sister City program launches peoples’ diplomacy in the spirit of the 21st century. The Baltimore-Luxor-Alexandria Sister City Committee fosters cooperation and understanding among the American city of Baltimore, Maryland, and the two historical Egyptian cities, Luxor and Alexandria, through exchanges of individuals and groups interested in technology and business, urban development, education, literature and more. We believe that cooperation among people is more complete if it successfully combines, in a practical manner, culture, social and business interests.
