About 35km SW of Chomo...a reasonable size village on the main road. But what a poor campsite...the worst we have had.

Cycled 177km today..another big one in km's but relatively easy conditions...slight tail wind, flat terrain. The scenery has been the same for a few days now....one could get bored with it, but I guess a few months into the furture, I'll probably really appreciate 'just cycling in Africa, with an empty road, and great green bushveld all around..

Tomorrow is another big km today, and the last day into Livingston. Looking forward to that.

Busy preparing my bike for the journey on 'our' own...swapping tyres, sorting out the chain, and selecting the spares I will need to take with me.

Till tomorrow, and my last blog...cheers
