A little lie down







In the Cameroon, we travelled from Yaounde to Ebolowa to Kribi. That last stretch of road -- Ebolowa to Kribi -- was horrible and the truck had a little bit of a lie down. No, it didn't fall over - the road actually caved in. It took more than three hours and a kindly passing truck to get it/us out. Almost 100 locals got in the act -- either digging, advising or observing.

First time we seen the truck. Looks like your having a great time. Just found your card you gave us at the Carlton.

Hi Peggy,
I'm really pleased to read that you and John are having such a good holiday. It sounds a bit intrepid for me but I can see that you're coping brilliantly; as you do with everything of course! Canberra is very cold at the moment. We're finally having some rain followed by wind and literally freezing conditions. I don't know what the wind chill factor is but it feels very icy. In fact it's so cold that Ebony and Zoe are only going outside when it's absolutely necessary. I'm really enjoying reading your descriptions of the trip and the markets. Take care and keep having fun.
Best wishes always
Lousie
