Days in La (s)Paz….

The traffic from the day before, the cold weather; coupled with the flu I was battling, did not make for a pleasant entry into La Paz… The cold weather and high altitude, as well as daily rain showers while I was there, did nothing to improve my impression of the city…!! The cops were up […]

Chatting With the “Troops” and a VERY Big Day at the Office….!!

After eight hours of uninterrupted sleep, I was ready to ride again… By 6.00 am I had the Big Fella loaded and parked outside the front door of the hotel… I had to wait for the kitchen staff to get their day started, so that I could at least have a few cups of coffee […]

Three countries in a day… Part 1.

I rolled out of Harare at 6.30am and headed north-east on the A2. Traffic was light and I made good time, hoping to get to the border by 9.00am, as I had about 800 kms to ride today… To the east of the capital I passed many farms, where crops such as cotton, maize, millet […]
