Monday 8 october
In the morning the sleeping matras is flat again, that’s a mission for in the afternoon!
The promised shower is not working, a bucket of hot water will do.
Today we have to drive about 200km’s , that’s quite a distance with these hills.
After a few km´s Dirk-jan is stopped by the police, 14km’s too fast. That’s gonna cost you 30.000 shilling.. @*((^$#)(
With these hills the Ford needs to cool down, so we stop for a while.
In front of us is a big loaded truck in troubles, the have quite a big job to get it running again.
After a few kilometers it gets less steep and is more easy to ride for the Ford.
A man on a bicycle runs downhill with 4 full cans of water. He goes 45km per hour, amazing!
When we stop under a tree to get some lunch, a few children come to us, Inge gets a Frisbee and we throw some with them. Real fun.
After lunch Inge takes the wheel of the LandRover, and we are stopped by a roadblock.
Lots of business here, we buy some fruits
Since Inge is behind the wheel, we ride a lot offroad, she runs it like she never did something else before.
Around five we arrive at ‘The old farm house’.
Time for a cold beer, since this journey Trudy drinks it also!
T-(ford)bone steak for meal, what more do you want..
177k´s today, tomorrow we have a rest day.
