I haven't updated this blog nearly as much as planned. Mostly because I end up not staying in internet cafes very much.

I''m in Aswan. That's the end of the road for me in Egypt. It's about 1200 km from Cairo to Aswan. I was able to cycle for about 550 km of the way. For the missing kilometers, I wasn't worried for myself but the police don't like tourists travelling without a police escort.

Next is Sudan, but they say it could be two weeks for me to get a visa. I have time to kill and I'm not worried about two weeks here or there. The only issue is that it's getting hotter and hotter. The cycling in Sudan is going to be the hardest physically.

Hi Dan! Sorry you haven't been getting as much cycling in as hoped. Depending on when the heat starts up, you could cycle in the wee morning hours and early evening and sit out the worst midday heat whilst in the Sudan.

Dan! You're still in one piece! John was getting worried, which made me start to get paranoid...

Anyway, we finally got some real snow here--and boy is it snowy! We're looking at up to two feet! That's a record for March.

We are in full Spring swing in Oakland...
Glad you are doing well...even though you are not cycling as much as you like.

Thanks for the update!

Hello Dan,

It sounds like an amazing trip so far. I've been following your blog with great interest. You haven't said anything for a while, so I hope everything is ok.

Anyway, we think of you and hope you're safe.
