A beer tastes good.

13 Jul

Some photos from day three and four.

Back on the long straight B8 highway that we will follow all the way along the Caprivi Strip to Katima. This road makes navigating and decision making quite easy as it’s the only road.

Turning off to Shamangorwa village where we were going to stay with Sam, a US peace corp volunteer worker.

Waking on the morning of day four, another glorious sunrise and a frost on the tent. The night before we asked Sam where the toilet was? He handed us a roll of toilet paper and said, “walk that way 500 metres past the fence and find a spot”. Trust me, you know when you find the spot as there is a whole village mine field of turd and toilet paper.

Mandy looking as beautiful as ever on the morning of Day four without a shower.

Filming some boys that once again appeared from the bush where we had pulled off the side of the road for some lunch.

Day four we put in 80km’s as we had heard of a great camping spot on the Okavango River. This photo taken on the morning of Day 5. We spent Day 5 laying on the ground as the 80 kms the day before killed us. Well it wasn’t the 80kms that killed us, it was the last 4 kms on the sand road. I had my bike loaded up, 24 pack of beer and all, so pushing the bike for 2 hours through sand nearly killed me…………..as the cold beer was so close but so far away. After our first four days of cycle touring, a shower and a beer never tasted so good. 250km down 350km to go.

      Cheers Pauline,

      I will continue to get more blog posts up, but I only use internet once a week so it’s a little hard.

      Thanks for the comment, hope you are well.
