Flag of Angola  , Benguela,
Friday, November 16, 2012

Chill day so relaxing, pool and 3 huge meals a day! Left late in the morning after breakfast to make Benguela for the day. On route we met up with Tommy (another over lander I'd previously charts to on HU). Thinks he's had a hard time of it so we invite him to ride with us for a bit...may have a gang soon!

Keen to avoid anymore expats and people who stumble over themselves I tell you how much money they're making in tips country...oh and when you get to so and so ask a "white", they'll help you.

A positive noticeable things have changed, Flushing toilets, hot water and fridges and freezers that work!

Benguela was a pretty town but we decide (uh oh 3 decision makers to please) to push on to fishing village 40km south. It's ok but probably not worth the trek.

Was funny though when we asked the staff in the bar where we could get and Angolan stickers for the panniers...

The not morning the ly returned with t shirtless, caps and button badges all sporting Eduardo dos santos's face. Haha we road all day looking like this!
