Angola. Oh gosh, I can see the border of Angola, heading south into Namibia, ahead.
If this seems like it’s been a long time coming, it’s because of this:
By way of comparison, next up is Namibia. It’s also large but not quite as far to go.
But lest we think that Angola’s the worst of it (it’s not, there are a bunch of big countries ahead), in fact right after Namibia I have the longest single-country stretch on the itinerary.
Probably I should not have looked any of that up. But it’s hard to really grasp the scale of the continent… or this crazy undertaking of mine.
Based on my August progress, the equivalent distance will take me 3+ months to cover. So I guess I’m aiming for the far border of South Africa by the new year.
Goals within goals.
🎂Happy birthday Fred.
