This morning we pulled ourselves out of bed in time to have a 7:30 breakfast, so we could be ready to leave at 8:00 am. We weren't very hungry after our late dinner, but we knew we probably wouldn’t eat much or any lunch, so we ate as heartily as we could. We brought down our bags and checked out in the lobby where Paul met us right on time. …
This morning, I woke up at about 5:30 AM, but I hit the snooze button for the first time in a while. I wanted an extra half hour of sleep since we weren't leaving for breakfast until 7 a.m. The extra sleep was good for me, but it left me with no choice but to start the day without a cold, cold shower. This was not so bad since I just had a nice, warm shower last night. It also gave me more time to completely re-pack my suitcase. This was important since yesterday ...
I was a little off my game this morning after a great night's sleep last night. I got a little behind on my packing due to doing a good amount of laundry last night. I wasn't able to make up the time. So, I was about 15 minutes late for breakfast. Paul showed up on time at 7AM to pick us up, and I guess I had missed Mr. Meeker's knock at the door as I rushed to prepare my bags. When he came to the door the second time, it was already 7:15AM, and I heard his knock this time. I ...
Panic over…..I survived the bush camping. In fact today was day seven of not showering which is definitely a personal best for me. I think the first few days were the worst and then I sort of stopped noticing the filth! I am also happy to say I took one for the team as on day five everyone else had a wash in a river except me as I was on cooking duty and so I was officially the dirtiest person on the truck (although I was aided hugely by the baby wipes, ...
All fixed and so we left to go to the
main police station for the report. After 1 ½ hour wait and a
payment of about £8 we finally got the report so can now forward it
to the insurers. Also today we went back to Abobo to get a couple of
rubber bushes made by hand from an old truck tyre. That took 2 hours.
Then we set off and drove to Yamoussoukro the new capital of the
country. It ended up that we could only find a garage forecourt to
stay overnight even ...

About the only western-level hotel in Yamoussoukro. We stayed in the less expensive "batiment" rather than the tower. Rooms haven't been freshened in a long while, so carpet and pain showing age. Well above average service; nice grounds.Good value for money.
