31st December On the road we met a Swizz motor biker crossing African on his own - Nick - we invited him to follow us & spend New Year's. The roads got better & then tarmacked. We bushcamped into New Year, seeing a massive hillside bushfire at midnight.
1st January 2013 Happy New Year. We awoke to find the tents covered in ash from the bush fire. We said farewell to Nick and drove on good roads until lunchtime, when we got to Bossou, where we bushcamped in the grounds of the chimp research station. In the evening we watched the local football match between Bossou & Bossou Christians.
4th January Drove all day to Abidjan. Camped close to the beach.
5th January We had 100% humidity from the morning onwards. I tried the sea, but the surf was too heavy to enjoy swimming. Camped.
6th January We were due to do cookgroup, but had to cancel as the site we were camping at had a live reggae night. It went on for 4 hours - about 2 hours too long for the standard of band that was playing. Camped.
