African Wake Up Call from Chris Atakpame, Togo West Africa Wednesday, August 1, 2007
Andy! You are in Africa.
I wrote my friend Chris, a super internet surfer, on the cutting edge of everything known and not known. I thought I would ask for some suggestions on what videos to make in Africa.
He gave me a wake up call, witty and quick this man Chris, he banged me on the head twice, then I sat up, so he whacked me again. He said, “…this is like suggesting an experiment for an Astronaut to do while he orbits the Planet through the cold vacuum of Space.”
Well, if you do come up with something you wish to see in Africa, then please tell me.
You DO realize you're already living an almost incomprehensibly intrepid life? "Oh, he'd been traveling the World for 10 yrs - went to Africa solo and is now living with the locals for a couple years. He didn't know the culture or language so he's teaching himself French and is doing documentaries - He's picking up everything as he goes along." Or, "He has 2 Passports and is riding a motorcycle across Africa where the women are still topless - he somehow manages to find Internet access in the most remote places on Earth and run a successful tax-free business Online."
"Africa? That's a country right?" OK, If I can think of anything I will (this is like suggesting an experiment for an Astronaut to do while he orbits the Planet through the cold vacuum of Space). Oh, yeah, take some more photos for a portfolio to sell to NGO's and find some expert Germans (or any other Nationality) transferring technology. I like Solar - very flashy. Same-Same ... if you can think of something here I can do lemmee know, hahah. …
Coffee's done - bye for now Intrepid Andy - One In A Million!
Ok, Chris, I am awake, I smell the coffee, not easy to suggest what to do in Africa. Then he used the word intrepid, I had to go look up the word in the dictionary.
