    I always had massive respect for road bikers in Tanzania, it must be hellish with the heat, dust, traffic etc
     
  3. Burkina Faso : I remember reading on the Foreign Office website several years ago a warning about not driving on the Ougadougou to Bobo Dialasso road after dark, because of potholes, unlit donkey carts and cattle sleeping on the road.

    "The Ougadougou to Bobo Dialasso road" : what a truly romantic phrase !

    One day, I'll travel on the Ougadougou to Bobo Dialasso road.
