    In the morning we set off for the 150 miles to Luanda. The road was great and the trees to the side were stunning(I'll load some pictures from my headcam when time allows). These poor creatures were for sale at the side of the road. The seller even offered to dress them for us, we declined.

    As the heat built up we arrived in the large city of Luanda and weaved our way through the traffic for about 45 minutes, which demanded our full attention.

    At a fuel and cold drink stop I had my bike protected, for the first time, by the Kalashnikov toting security guard, who loved having his photo taken, and everyone joined in.

    This in Maxi's Landy, driven here from Munich, including through the mud of the DRC, with a KTM 990 In the back. I've seen the video!

    We'll rough it tonight in this poor excuse for a hotel:-)

    A couple more shots of our 30 km flight over the River Congo estuary. Did Jim say it was quite cosy?

    Glad things are going to well. I'm sure you will get local advice there but Ihla do Cabo is a narrow spit off town that certainly used to be a peaceful haven worth going to.

    Where do you plan to go into Namibia?

    Thanks Jock we may well swing by (although with Luanda prices it may just be for a half and 2 straws

    Jim has been busy on his bike today.

    And a shout out to Albatross who has kindly despatched me his old 1150 injectors in case that's what's needed. Good mates on UKGSer!

    And I found a (sadly deceased) hitch hiker on the bike

    Gentleman talking on his cellphone, is that bicycle handles the lady further down is holding? How much luggage was strapped to the roof?
