I started pedaling from Mallawi (beside Nile river) 8:00AM in this morning. I stopped police control point 20 km from Mallawi. Police man called to other polices. 5 policemen escoted me by police truck and it was so stressful. At last they took my bicycle on their police truck. They were friendly and they enjoyed to help??? me. But I am not happy for their help. I asked local people how dangerous there are. Nobody says dangerous. Local people cycle without any escote! I arrived to Asyut city in this afternoon (90 km from Mallawi). I took 5 police cars in these 70 km. When I cycle in the Asyut city, police man always follow me..... Policemen are every corner at this city......

I escaped several police control points today. But at last 7 policemen caught me 70 km away from Asyut city. I continued to cycle until Sohag city but police car always escoted me. It was very stressful. When I arrived Sohag city, policemen took me to police station and then took me to hotel. The problem was I can not speak Arabic and they can not speak any English. We could not understand each other... The hotel was too expensive for me,next hotel was closed, next hotel did not accept foreigners.....It spent a lot of times to find my hotel with policemen. If I go alone, I can find easier.... The cheaf of policemen in Sohag city promised me that he will eacote me to Quena city (150 km away fromSohag) tomorrow. I am nervus about tomorrow.....
