Empire and Cologne
Twelve thousand six hundred fifty-six kilometers. So, in lyrics, impress more and you fill your mouth more - and your head - when you pronounce them than with a simple 12,656. It is the distance that Google Maps says that we would have to travel to get from London to Cape Town.
There, in South Africa, at the seat of the legislative power of the former British colony, in Cape Town, we have our partner David. As he is so technophobic and I am so technophile (a phobia and a philia that do not separate us at all), I know that he will be more disconnected than connected (as it should be!) And it will take, soon, to see photos of that trip - that By the way, you are not sure how long it will take.
I know little about South Africa (its history as a former British colony, the peculiarity of its language, the already disappeared apartheid, several cinematographic references, etc.) so I have decided to give myself, and give you, the view with a Timelapse of the photographer and designer Rory Allen, with images especially of his South Africa and some, easily recognizable, of London, the ancient capital of a Empire that - as once in Spain - came to cover countries on all continents.

Ah, we would spend 2,490 hours (or almost 104 days) to arrive walking from London to Cape Town. And by "walking" I also mean "taking a couple of boats."
