Mike has taken the moped and put the paperwork into the Mali Embassy, has to return on Monday to collect. Found the Ivory Coast embassy but they closed early so have to go again on Monday.
Now on route to Dakar, having left at 7.30 we got to the centre at 1.15. We then stopped for lunch and and thought we had perfect timing to get our temporary import changed and get the vehicle passport stamped. Went to the office we thought was correct only to find we had duff info. After waiting an hour we were told we had to go to the port itself, only about a 15 minute walk away. 4 hours after arriving at the second office we got our papers stamped with no fee involved. Then drove to a campsite by the sea. We have now had to change our plans as one of the roads in Guinea is in particularly bad condition with some pothole up to 7 foot deep. (Yes that is correct, 7 ft.) It would make our trip too arduous and so now we are going to Mali instead and so we need visa's for their as well as for the Ivory Coast, but these will take a few days to get.
