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.


It is beautiful along the coast.

And so many, yes soo many, holiday houses are being built, or have been built.

There are mountains in the background, some with snowy tops now.

The mountains are praised because they have ‘the most oxygen’.

So people come here to sniff up the fresh air. I had never heard that expressed in terms of oxygen content before.

It must be too crowded in summer. Thinking of Mancur Olson and how the more people come to enjoy this nice area, the less special it is likely to become for each of them.

There was some hefty climbing today. Part of the way i could follow the shore. Then i had to turn back around Karaağaç and take the main road with cars until Ayvalik.
