Another daily dose of average mortgage comparisons, this is for anyone who's ever dreamed of packing up and moving somewhere new and exciting ;D

Now here we have Argentina, the city of Buenos Aires!,
Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina, and the second-largest metropolitan area in South America, after São Paulo. It is located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata, on the southeastern coast of the South American continent. Greater Buenos Aires conurbation, which also includes several Buenos Aires Province districts, constitutes the third-largest conurbation in Latin America, with a population of around 13 million.

And here we have Egypt, the city of Cairo!
Cairo has a population of 7.8 million spread over 453 square kilometers (175 sq mi), Cairo is by far the largest city in Egypt. With an additional ten million inhabitants just outside the city, Cairo resides at the centre of the largest metropolitan area in Africa and the eleventh-largest urban area in the world. Cairo, like many other mega-cities, suffers from high levels of pollution and traffic, but its metro – currently one of only two on the African continent – also ranks among the fifteen busiest in the world, with over 700 million passenger rides annually.
