It feels good to be back on the road again, sleeping wild amongst swarms of locusts, Baobab trees and chanting villages. We've made steady progress through Senegal so far and should reach the Mali border by the 10th. Were hoping to camp on the banks of the Gambie river tonight. A chance to have a bathe in this near 40c heat! I definitely feel that I'm in the real Africa now. My bike is back to its usual glory too. 50km on 1 litre of petrol and burning no oil. If only I wouldn't nearly burn us to death by setting fire to dry grass whilst trying to cook my dinner in the middle of acres and acres of sunburnt grassland then this update would be disaster free. Alas, no.
