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.

The neighborhood is new. Digging for pipelines.

It was probably a luxurious outskirts of Alexandria with villas along the coast. Now it is stuffed with new and mostly still unoccupied apartment buildings.

I am told it was home to ministers and senior journalists, such as the head of the largest press institution in Egypt. They moved 100 km West about 10 years ago.
