Late start headed for Bouaki and Yamoussoukro, we started on black ribbons of glorious tar but it quickly faded to potholes and slower speeds but it was still amazing to be out the dust and mud!
Hmm overall not much to report (just lots of AK wielding soldiers, all very pleasant and interested in the gps and bikes.) rather dull in comparison to the last week so when we got into yamoussoukro we spent the evening plotting our Ghana leg. Really looking forward to it.
After dinner (2 dinners, we ate twice) we met a man called Frans Viljoen, south African lecturer at tucs university. Really interesting man, he now works for an NGO resolving human rights abuses in west Africa. Really nice talking to a positive person, especially since he drove through africa in 1995 in a Lada.
Great advice, you will always make a plan and everything will work itself out.
