1847 ving Egypt again, there was political unrest in Cairo and surroun- dings. I had traveled through Sudan roughly one week before the vote on the secession of South Sudan to enter Ethiopia. To obtain a visa for Yemen in Djibouti I needed considerable help from a high-up official of the previous government in Djibouti, and after obtaining the visa received the information to avoid north Yemen at all costs. After entering Yemen from Djibouti on a dhow, we had to entrust ourselves (at the time I was traveling with a Swiss motorcyclist) to a police and military escort for approx. 500 km.
