A loong cycling journey from Brooklyn to Jorusalom, where the O’s are bicycle wheels, continued into Egypt, 1st to the climate conference COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, on to the pyramids in Giza, Abusir and Saqqara and then up the Nile soourcewards.


I must say i am rather fascinated by the dogs and cats here. They roam around freely, sometimes alone, sometimes in little groups. Mostly just alongside humans without much interaction and sometimes in a brawl with each other. Some of them like to bark at and chase cars. This also happens to me as a bicyclist and is not that funny when it happens. Having 5, 6 dogs following you barking and some snarling and one was going to bite one time and then my voice, or was it something else, suddenly stopped him before he bit my ankle.

All in all it is fascinating to see this life among humans, no leashes to ‘possess’ an animal. It is like this in Serbia, Bulgaria and now Turkey.

I think it is their intelligence that fascinates me. The way they know about traffic and navigate it, for instance. And their independence, just roaming around freely. And not really bothering people asking for food or anything. Although of course they must live off the spills and probably some people feed them a bit i suppose.

Anyway, it’s rainbow day
