147km cycled today.....first 25 km in convoy with a police escort getting
out of Khartoum....quite a mission and created quite an event for the
locals..... Not an attractive cycle though...
Then we split up and the road was the most uninspiring todate.....real 3rd
world stuff....and a narrow road with lots of trucks with double trailers
flying past us cm's from the bike.....!
Either side of the road was flat and full with plastic bags blowing around,
a constant dust cloud, and lots of dead domestic animals lying on the side
of the road.....the worst ride to date, but one I had expected earlier on
the trip. Apparently the next three days of Sudan are like this, before we
enter the new environment of Ethiopia.
