Toe kom ek nounet op hierdie een af. Onge-bleddie-looflik.
Sopas 'n uur by die werk verloor haha.
Klink soos 'n ander węreld en tien teen een was dit, maar nou juk dit om op 'n bike te spring Afrika in.

Daardie een het jy reg, Afrika is 'n ander wereld. Suid Afrika sukkel om kers vas tehou by die egte Afrika. Hoop jy sal dit geniet en nie te erg ontnugter wees deur al die onnodige nonsens nie, meeste van Afrika is 100 tot baie honderde jare agter gelaat.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank amongst those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

It is amazing how this story stands the test of time!

Frohan, you're probably transitioning from legend into myth at this point!

I mean, you! - check the kit Oakes - in this narcissistic consumerist age - just a flipping backpack and some home-made panniers - no fancy riding kit - it is a consummate inspiration to go so minimalistically, yet with so much meaning.

Thank you, Frohan
