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.

Early morning sailing

Later in the morning

Le 29 au soir, nous étions à Eléthya (El-Kab); je parcourus l’enceinte et les ruines, la lanterne à la main; mais je ne trouvai plus rien: les restes des deux temples avaient disparu; on les a aussi démolis il y a peu de temps pour réparer le quai d’Esné ou quelque autre construction récente. Avais-je tort de me presser de venir en Égypte? Champollion visiting El-Kab in 1828, to find its 2 temples recently destroyed to reinforce the banks of the Nile in Esna. Decrying: “Didn’t i say i had to hurry to come to Egypt.” (almost 200 years ago!)
