Having had a mad 3 days of driving through Europe it was good being able to go out lat night and not worry about being up early to hit the road again. Most teams have turned up by now a lot of conversations were being had about weather to push on through to Mauritania or not – there is even rumour of an army escort through the desert. We've pretty much ruled this out and the breaking news of another group of Italians pretty much makes up everybody’s mind. Although Paul came up with the best quote of the day – "Yeah but its not been confirmed yet". I pointed out that yes it hadn’t and yes all that had found was their bullet ridden car in the desert with no trace of them or their guide. We all laugh as we realise how absurd this trip is becoming. It doesn’t help that its pissing it down with rain all day! I joked before about it being monsoon in the desert but now I’m not too sure, weather forecast has it raining up till Christmas day!

A team planning session was had in the morning and the group of people we are with all seem really nice and the trip is now starting to get more and more like a reality – which is good I guess considering we are in day 4!

Funny fact for the day gets pointed out to us – there are two different versions of the 1 Euro coin. One with Sweden one without…. See if you can figure out why Sweden was suddenly added even though there are not part of the Union.
