Set off on the 400km journey from Saly to Tambacounda around 9am. The road to Kaolack was reasonable but after that we hit a pot hole ridden road which lasted for the duration.  We ended up taking a parallel track used by the donkey carts which although bumpy, was the preferred option to hitting the holes every 5 yards.
The track resembled a piste bashed ski run in places with the tracks left by a Caterpillar so trying to listen to a  CD or even the iPod was useless.

After 3 brief stops we arrived in Tambacounda at 18.30hrs. A long and very dusty day.
