|567> molting our skin to the quarry, in sum|
25 Dec | Amsterdam to DC> Read The Quarry by Damon Galgut on the plane from Cape Town to Amsterdam + then now Amsterdam to DC. Xmas day... seems we always fly on Xmas. Guess we dug The Quarry, a bit reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy, but in rural South Africa, so timely after our trip.
December 27 | DC> Been back in DC a few days, but hit the ground running, setting things in motion for our move back to Rome. Shock to our system, almost 100° temperature differential. To summarize our South Africa/Namibia trip, here's the route we took:
... 4450 km, not counting side trips (our odometer clocked more than 5000). 2 flats. Lots of animals, not menny ppl, just how we like hit. Endless barren + desolate landxcapes. Now in the waning dayz of 2017... dint do much travelling this year till these past 2 months, December in South Afrikkaa + Namibia + November in Rome, Buenos Aires + London. Other than dat, Mexico x2: Cuernavaca + Guanajuato + the West coast x2: California + Nevada. Back + 4th to Baltimore + NYC a few times. Red sum 40+ books. Finished riding 1 book, published onely 1 other... the archive slowin' down + now dat we defecting back to Rome probly even more so, specially as we onely publish anonymous/pseudonymous works now. Put out our 1st cassette, wich actually we xpecting UPS to deliver any minit now. Not mush else to say... hystorically probly 1 of the most dipressing yrs ever for ∀merika... glad we getting the hell outta here...
