“Argh, I am tired of sleeping in a tent,” Magnus said on the phone this morning. Last night, the guys were planning on relaxing and sleeping proper beds in a hotel in Bojdour, Western Sahara. But when they finally reached the hotel – hours after everyone else, I might add – all the rooms were taken… With no room in the inn, the vespateers had to settle for the tent – again.
Today, the stunning coastline of Western Sahara awaits them. It is lined with shipwrecks. Check out this webpage for pics: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/7091916 Today´s drive is 470 kilometers long.
The guys will end up at the border to Mauritania some time this evening. “We could not have found a more bizarre place for an overnight camp,” the roadbook says:
“There’s a strange little restaurant full of action movie characters on the border. Smugglers, car dealers, adventurers, black market Coca Cola traders wrapped in blue and white sheets give this spot the feeling of a real Moss Iseley. Welcome To The Sahara.”
