A view of my travels to other places with no great plan.

We are up with the sun and are low on water. One place giving us water is out of an
antifreeze bottle and the water has big pieces of algae in it. Never did get desperate enough to drink that
water even when I was running short at times through the day. A Brit running the road repairs gave me a
cold orange soda, which was good for 5k as I tried to get every last drop from
the can, again and again. Road was being
repaired and the traffic was sent off onto a dirt road. The road crew let us stay on the pavement as
5k stretches of dirt and sand riding. As
Nouakchott found the GPS actually had the auberge that we wanted marked. This was a first for Africa. It was a long hot day and it was nice not to wander the city looking for the right street.
