Last Section in Their Sights
Somehow weâ€™re already at the end of another section. Wow, the kilometers and time are flying by! Unfortunately, weâ€™re going to be losing 8 sectional riders, including John, whoâ€™s been with us since Arusha, and 8 of our French guys, whoâ€™ve spent just the Elephant Highway with us. They easily covered a lot of ground, though, topping out with our 207 kilometer day. Not bad, guys, congratulations!
Weâ€™ve left another country behind as well (Botswana), and today entered the capital city of Namibia, Windhoek, where weâ€™ll spend the next 2 rest days. People have big plans, some culminating with a trip to KFC, something people have been looking forward to since Egypt! Weâ€™ve hit fried chicken places before now, but not Kentucky Fried Chicken, so itâ€™s going to be a big treat. Funny the things that come to mean so much to you while traveling. Others are planning to head to Swakopmund, a picturesque town on the coast, filled with adventure activities like sandboarding and skydiving. Otherwise, itâ€™s the usual rest day activities, gorging on whatever strikes oneâ€™s fancy, doing laundry (I hear there are even coin-operated washing machines somewhere!), reading, finding the internet, sleeping in, etc.
After our rest days (2 in a row!), weâ€™ve just 1 section left (the Diamond Coast), 2 countries (Namibia and South Africa), and 1,598 kilometers. I canâ€™t believe it, but weâ€™re in the countdown stagesâ€¦.
