This morning I added another brick to my training rucksack, bringing the total weight to 20 kg. This is the limit that I’ve set for myself, and I’ll be training with this weight for the next month, until I depart on my adventure.
I chose a slightly different route for this morning’s walk, so I headed for the foothills of the Kobee. About 1.5 km from home, I came across a number of Aardvark burrows. ‘Aardvark’ is an Afrikaans word which directly translates into ‘earth pig’.
The Aardvark is a shy, nocturnal mammal that excavates extensive burrows. Here are some photographs.
