Clement likes challenges, and today he gave me one that he knew would be hard – as a challenge should be. Cycle 1000km without a map, without GPS and without tracking my route. This challenge reached deep into my being. I can’t do that. Why not? I don’t know.

Today was exhausting. 100km of up and down and up and down, through the palm plantations and the forest, passing near the sea, but only touching it once. That one time we hit the sea was exactly when I passed 28000km.

We stopped in a village at the end of the day, and were immediately invited in to stay. The whole village descended on our place, and we had about 50 people surrounding us in an orgy of selfies. The level of excitement was incredible. I don’t think the kids will sleep for a week!
