Its back to Yussefs Auberge who is a friend of Jays to get cleaned up. For supper im introduced to some Dibi. Its lamb chopped coarsely with a big machete, thrown on a BBQ while covered in thick paper. This is then served on the same paper with mustard and spicy powder. Quite delicious. Afterwards we go for a quick Flag beer with Yussef and the boys
We sadly decide to head for Gambia as the weather is pretty bad. The plan was initially to stay and relax in the sun for a bit. This time the road is long and rain is abundant in places During long stretches the amount of potholes is ridiculous and becomes a merry go round of a ride. We do have some fun by thrashing the vehicles in the red and muddy puddles. Its a very remote countryside and it get much greener the further south we go. We arrive at the border at sunset. Again, another border crossing in Africa in the flippin dark. Every single one so far..
The ridiculous delays caused by the ridiculous paperwork and brides demanded by the customs and police are no surprise. On top of that im still feeling ill. The only pleasant aspect is that everyone in Gambia speaks English!
