Growing a beard requires commitment and can be a test of character as well as a surprising process of self-discovery (at least according to the “All About Beards website”). Never having grown a serious beard before, Andy decided to grow one during our trip.
During the past 6 months there were many comments about Andy’s beard, not only from Tini. The most extreme and funny comments compared Andy to a “home grown terrorist”, a “homeless guy”, “Jesus” (?) and a “Sailor”.
Few people seemed to not particularly like the beard, the majority seemed rather fond of it. However after nearly 6 months it was either time for serious beard trimming, or cutting it down entirely. The upcoming trekking tours with a lot of sunscreen and dust and only few possibilities to wash also suggested it might now be the time to take the beard off.
BUT, not without documenting the different steps of beard-removal 🙂
Sorry Timmy, if you’re disappointed. Perhaps Andy’s beard time will still come, but not just right now…This entry was posted in South-America, WorldMap
