Yesterday we went to the Gambian embassy in Brussels to get our consignment letter that is an enormous help for crossing customs and checkpoints, and to get a good spot on the ferry. The vice-ambassador Mr. Ebrima O Camara helps us a lot with this.
We also had to drive twice to the Mauretanian embassy to get our visa, a very costly affair, 120 euro for each, just for a simple transit visum. A wast of money, we could do so much with 240 euros in Buntung.
Today I drove to Laakdal to buy two new tires for the trailer, another 112 euro, but indispensable, as we need good tires to get there safely.
