Backpack

We have to walk from Jo’burg to Lusaka. We don’t have passports or money – just backpacks and bottled water. And we must get there in two days’ time. Why two days, no one knows – no one asks. It’s just the goal that’s set, and we don’t know who set it. There’s no time to lose – just pick up your backpack and move.
