Atakpame to Kara Togo Atakpame, Togo West Africa Saturday, July 7, 2007
I am going to Kara, Togo tomorrow, I will leave Atakpame, Togo very early, just as the sun rises, I believe this time is best time to catch public transportation in West Africa.
I was asked a reasonable question yesterday while chatting on yahoo messenger with a friend, - What are you going to see there? -
I thought to myself, - What a stupid questions. -
Then I realized, this is not a stupid question, this is a normal question, I am the one who is being little stupid. An empathy lapse, as I am a traveler, I cannot for the life of me figure a good reason to go anywhere anymore, other than I go, just seems like the right thing to do, not sure why though. Therefore why would I be crazy to waste my time thinking about why I am going.
I could not walk by an open door with out taking a peek inside, a long time ago in Antigua, Guatemala a girl from France, said, - We travel until we know why we travel. -
I still do not know why I travel, I can give you thousands of reasons to travel and why not to travel, but to just say, - I travel because of this reason…. X, that is a difficult question. -
Closest answer I can say is, - I have nothing better to do. -
I have smelled a fight, boxing they say in French, however the word is lutte or wrestling, I was told for a week or something called Evala will occur. I do not want to spoil the boxing so I will stop thinking and get a real first impression and not a I-expected-to-see this impression, nothing like ruining a first impresion than to run it through a filter of guidebooks, website and gossip. I think the best tourist attractions are those you stumble upon by accident. http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evala
