I finished reading your blog update regarding your misfortune in Morroco. I'm thinking about an African ride in the future and I hope yours goes well.
Last September, with three weeks to go before my flight to Buenos Aires, I required two stents. I had planned for several months for a ride in South America. I really had great concerns about the advisability of trip. However I continued with my plans and greatly enjoyed the adventure.
Hopefully you are now feeling good and confident in your health. I will follow your trip as you post photos etc. Enjoy.
