So this is it, I’m leaving Cape Town tomorrow morning and heading for Cairo, and I’m super excited! With all luck, I should arrive there sometime in mid-May. Here is the route I’m taking through 11 countries:
People ask me what my goals on this trip are. Well, I have three major goals, in no particular order:
- Not to contract malaria, or any other communicable diseases
- Not to get taken hostage or abducted
- Not to get mauled by an animal while sleeping in the bush
Any other achievements would be icing on top! But seriously, my goals are to read a lot, learn a lot, write a lot, think a lot and have a lot of fun! I’m looking for inspiration in Africa for my next entrepreneurial pursuit when I return to California later this summer. In the meantime, connectivity will be a major issue, so my blog postings will be more sporadic going forward and only when and if I can get online in the bush.
South Africa has been wonderful, and Cape Town rocks. I especially like the Bo Kaap and de Waterkant neighborhoods – lots of beautiful multicolored houses. It’s been a great five weeks here (on the luxurious side!), but now I must bid adieu and get ready to rough it in the bush, all 6800 miles up the continent. Well, thankfully at least I have my butt pillow with me.
See you in Cairo!!
