Monika felt slightly strange, she was not really enthusiastic to continue our trip.
After all dangers in Togo, leaving the country and entering Ghana was not as easy as we thought it would be.
On to Lomé. Here we discovered some interesting issues.
In Porto Novo, the proud capital of Benin we went on a discovery tour. There are some beautiful colonial buildings occupied by all kind of Government institutions.
On the way to Dassa in Central Benin. Some 300 km.
We planned to visit the Pendjari National Park. As the rainy season started we were afraid the roads might not be practicable and the park closed.
In Laufenburg we opened the entrance door of our apartment just to discover that it was not any warmer than our house in Maseru during the winter months: 9 degrees.
On this route u cross a really great number of countries u wouldn’t have heard about a few years ago. This implies lots of border crossings and intense socializing with locals hanging around at the border posts.
Currently we crossed 14 countries and 13 borders. Time for some remarks on bureaucracy and hassle when moving from 1 place to another.
Tomorrow we should leave Egypt to sail to Turkey. Our fixer was not present; but he sent us 2 sub-fixers, Ahmed and Ibrahim.
