Flag of Turkey  ,
Thursday, November 6, 2008

Yesterday I was chugging up a hill when I heard a shout from behind. This happens about 50 times a day as the Turkish people are very frıendly and encouraging. But we were on a lonely stretch of highway with no human development in sight. So I look behind me and what do I see but....another cyclist chugging up the hill after me.

Enter Alban!

Alban is a French cyclist who is riding from Lille to Jerusalem. He is an aspiring photographer and is exploring the theme of family as he travels through these diverse countries and cultures. His journey is also an exploration of his personal faith and he is spending time with peoples of various faiths to learn more about his own beliefs.

He is also a really great guy and has been an excellent riding companion for the last couple days. I admire his open way with people which shows in his travel style as well as his photos.

We will probably go our separate directions tomorrow but we have really enjoyed his company and wish him all the best.

Gule Gule Alban!
