I finally used my Røde mics and the lightning audio interface plugged into my phone to record my friend Hudy and I on Quinta Laila. Now, it’s time to split the channels, figure out how to use Ferrite, and publish. Insha’Allāh, it’ll be out before Friday.
One day at Quinta Laila is spent cementing a wall, the other figuring out how to mosquito-proof the bedroom and living room. The frames came out nicely and can be sanded and painted or treated.
I started my ten-day vacation from work today and it feels fantastic. Tomorrow, we’re driving the 4.5 hours down to Oleiros, central Portugal tomorrow.
More travel daydreams. I started looking back at photos from Sierra Leone and forgot I had taken this one before taking the boat to the Banana Islands.
I’ve recommended a hypothetical overland trip from Spain/Morocco to Sierra Leone and back to so many people with having only overlanded half of it. It’s been in my head awhile. I learned a lot about my preferred way of travel in Latin America that I would like to use in West Africa again.
Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Senegal (maybe The Gambia), Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, and Sierra Leone.
Three months minimum. Local transport. Stay in villages and bring rice for potential hosts. You could fly down to Freetown and start up depending on how you feel about air travel.
