“I think we´ll reach as far as St Louis, Senegal today,” Magnus said optimistically earlier today, around 3 p.m. At that point, the three vespateers had just reached the Mauritanian-Senegalese border at Rosso. 5 hours later, the guys are still stuck at the border… At least now, they have crossed the river successfully. “Worst bordercrossing ever,” was the conclusion.
The road from Nouakchott to the border was in really bad condition. “Just as many holes as Vogts gate, Torshov,” said Magnus (for those familiar with Oslo streets ). And then there were the camels. Adrien had to brake really hard to avoid hitting one. “At first, the camels were really excotic. Now, we just think they are in the way,” said the globetrotters.
Tomorrow, the adventure continues along the Senegalese coast – hopefully!
