Hello all, I'm still alive and riding. Arrived yesterday in Tbilisi, Georgia.
On the way, I again browsed through Jordan in only one day and extended my visa in Syria, because I had such good time in Damascus. After visiting some more historical sites I returned to good old Turkey, where I stayed in Orfa (birthplace of Abraham) for a few days.
Now, after some time in the kurdish east of Turkey, having almost climbed the Suphan Mountain at the Lake Van in eastern Turkey, and 2-3 days pretty rough riding in rain, mud and on offroad-tracks, my head is somehow devoted to getting accustomed to the georgian way of live. The arab mentality suddenly vanished, I try to remember my russian and I somehow cant be buggered to write about things that are two weeks in the past.
I notice, that I'm travelling fast, which on one hand is exciting because of the ever new adventures, but on the other hand it's a bit tiring. I notice that I don't spend as much energy getting behind things and that is a bit unsatisfactory. Of course that was foreseeable and I'm still happy to have done the detour to Israel, but I hope I'll be able to take it a little easier from now on. Unfortunately the the Georgian custom guys have give me only 10 days permission for the bike, before I have to leave to Azerbaidshan. Not a lot for my ambitions in the caucasus, but lets see...
Ok, but to not skip my recent travels altogther, I still put some pictures and maybe a little description.
