I'll be in Morocco around the 7'th or 9'th of November, heading for Capetown down the westcoast. If you are leaving soon, I may not catch up with you, since I plan on going at a very leasurely pace.

I know Orrin is doing that same "route" around this time. He'll be starting from England too but will be starting off with a ferry to Portugal if I remember correctly.

but give me a hollar if you think we'll be in the same area around this time. We can a or two. Mail to torsten@intoafrica.dk or send a PM.
