Two weeks ago I was getting ready to leave Istanbul and continue my journey east. At the same time my good friend Henry Williams was about to leave Cape Town and travel north for the next two months through the African continent on his own cycling adventure.
We had shared various tips on equipment and how to approach such a physical endeavour but one of the weirder discussions was whether it was best to shave or not. It didn’t take long for our childish minds to turn this into a challenge and a the following day agreed to have synchronised clean shaves… and then not shave for the next two months.
If I’m going to grow a beard then this is the best part of the world to do it I suppose.
More hairy updates and crazy eyes to follow.
