Interpretations of an overland trip across Africa

Fallen angel?

Louise illustrated herself skydiving. At first glance, this appears to be a representation of an adrenaline junkie's joyful experience of adventure sports. But perhaps this 'literal fall to earth' is a metaphor for the return to reality at the end of the trip, and one wonders if the figure's cry of 'I'm a bird' echoes the 'happy bird' in Stine's piece 'Cabin Humour'.
