Thank you to Atlantic Philanthropies for their generous and necessary donation to my expedition fund. Thanks also to Theresa Edlmann and Adele Kirsten for supporting this donation. Theresa’s moral support and kindness has been of immeasurable value to me over the past months.
I would also like to thank Paul Weinberg, the freelance photographer and now Senior Curator at the UCT Visual Archives. He was one of the first to point out the broader significance of what was at that point just me going for a long ride. Paul’s ongoing support has helped rescue the expedition and has provided me with moral and technical support.
Of course, without the love and support of Jen, family and numerous good friends I’d still be day dreaming rather than moving on this project. I’m deeply grateful to you all.
