I set off into heavy rain. Its rainy season in Kenya and usually rain in the morning and evening. The landscape changes with big mountains in the distance and savanah landscape between. I face strong crosswinds all day but push hard to make it to an encounter in Isiolo. I have been in touch with Dimitry Kieffer for over a year and we had planned to meet when our paths cross. He is completing a human powered circumnavigation of the globe and currently cycling to south Africa from where he will row to Brazil. He plans to reach Alaska in five years, the place where he started his journey in 2005.
I arrive late at 8 pm in the hotel where he already waits and we have a great dinner together. We travel at so different speed but share the same passion for adventure and a proper challenge.
