There we sat in a large aircraft hanger type thing waiting to be called into the office. Chinese whispers were floating around saying it was gonna take half an hour per person to sign and sort out the release documents for the bikes. 20 riders, half hour each, thats 10 hours of our favorite pastime,waiting.
Finally Barry was the first to go in
Steve, Nick, Martin and I jumped in a cab and headed back to base. Hopefully all this means we will have our bikes tomorrow and be on our way. HELL YEAH BABY !!!
A few of us then walked round the corner to get some chain lube and try and find the elusive Argy flag sticker to put on our screens so when we get to border crossings it looks like we are friendlies. No joy. We have been looking for days to no avail. It was then up the road to a cafe for a rank sandwich and a coke.
I had been feeling a little dizzy and had a bit of a headache all day but once I got back to the hostel it really started to kick in. Ive not been a sufferer of migraines but this bad boy really took hold. As they day wore on it got worse. At about 8pm I felt sick and had the shakes big time. I grabbed the bin and had a big retch but nothing happened. I instantly started to sweat and was drenched within 15 seconds. Suz called Caroline (our trip doc) up to check me out
Everyone has now gone out for dinner which they eat very late over here . The restaurants don't open till 8pm and even some evenings when we walk past them people are still eating into the small hours. I couldn't do that every night. Going to bed with a belly full of grub, I wouldn't be able to sleep. So here I am, Billy no mates talking to youz lot.
Oh well time to listen to some Led zep on the £20 mp3 player. That will cure the headache!
