Counting down the days.

As participants in the 2017 Tour d’Afrique, beginning in Cairo on Friday, January 13th, 2017, Linda and I successfully cycled the length of Africa, arriving in Cape Town on Saturday, May 13th, 121 days later.

One of the things I learned from my walk in NZ was that, for someone like me, blogging and social media and wotnots can be overwhelming tasks. They take away from the very experience I am trying to document. With that lesson learned, I aimed to approach this adventure differently.

Countdown is my project for this journey. The goal here is to chase down brevity. Each day I posted a single photo. Each photo is accompanied by a dateline, and an incrementally brief caption to summarize the day. The captions count down each day, from 121 words on the first day to a final one word post from Cape Town 120 days later.
