18km from a small town in Tanzanian Southern Highlands called Mafinga.
Yes back on bloggs again....had a wonderful time out solo on the trip from
Arusha to Iringa. You should be able to read all about it on the latest
newsletter, due out tomorrow.
Cycled 103km today. A new experience, as I cycled with my girlfriend Ruth
who arrived from London on saturday the 24th.
I promised that I would cycle with her the whole day today, and we did that,
finishing at 2 30pm. It was a long cycle for her so we went slowly with the
sole objective to get to camp in one piece and not so tired that she
wouldn't be able to cycle tomorrow.
Roads were tar and pretty good condition the whole way...want a dramatic
change from last week!
After a steep decline off the Iringa plateau (1500m) we had three fairly
long hills to climb today. But other than them the road was gentle rolling
hills in tea plantation country, which then changed to large Pine and
Tomorrow we continue our journey towards Mbeya, and then Lake Nyasa (Malawi)
Thata all for today, and you can expect daily bloggs from now on again.
