The early morning was the best time to cycle through the countryside of Togo and so we left early every morning and rode through villages that woke up while some weird 'yovo's' in strange outfits were passing by.

Hi Gerrit. Now i see how it is all done. I have high regards for both you and Sergiy as you are not only fit, both of you, but have an incredible sense of adventure. I do wonder what the locals must be thinking. Regards. Klaudio.

a fascinating and very well captured scene.
The POV is excellent and the viewer gets the impression of being part of the team. TFS!

An attractive daily life composition where the modern world comes to rural Africa. I like the soft early morning light and muted tones.

Bom dia Gerrit
This village seems some places that there are here in my region. Humble houses beside the roads covered by straw, tiles and so on. Very well registered.

I believe riding early in the morning is the best, the heat is more bearable.
For sure the villagers were surprise and maybe wondering about these cycling people passing the quiet road.
It looks like some houses are destroy on the left side...
Have a nice day

I'm passionate about these scenes, it is very interesting to see how life takes place in a civilization so far and different from ours. The quality of the shot is perfect.
A warm hug

I like this fine composition, showing some of the infrastructure in rural Togo!
Attractive composition with a strong sense of depth, a well balanced presentation...
The human factor is well taken care of..!
