I received some more pics from the team, very nice to have them, I will include some here - stuff that we saw but because I did not take a good picture on the day, the particular experience did not receive the recognition it deserved.  So here are some of Johan and Kallie's pics with a little bit of "explanation" here and there.


Here Martin had to look at Kallie's tooth ache.  Martin is not a dentist, but he is the closest to one.....  Using two small TORX keys as spanners....  It worked.


Bakkes had an England vuvuzela along.  This is the best purpose for it, and we did not have to put up with any noise.....  ;D




At the border post we saw this AIDS education


Friendly officials at the same border.  Check the mags on the Chinese bike


That cold camp site


Close to the Calai ferry.


Intersting local transport - check the kid in the box.


The police escourt in Menongue


Another tank....  This is Angola after all


This lady got her inspiration from a tank too maybe?


Chopper - some spares may still work??


These rolls are good food.




Doing business with the locals is a "massy" affair


We were not so good at cooking, but had a go when it was our turn.  And nobody suffered any after effects....  Go figure.




Fishing....




Main street of Cuvango


Market


Everyone's friend


Chinese architecture at a new station


Nice riding


They do draw crowds....


Lunch


Did  say Flamingo Lodge has great food??  






The river and Flamingo lodge on the beach


No Entry to nowhere


The camp sites were great, I need some leave!!








Even the Himbas ride them


But most still ride these


Dad and lads


Life is tough...

Tweety, just take leave and go. Berserker, Watkykjy and myself are going there in 26 days time. Hoe lekker brag ek nou.
This looks like a wonderful trip from your RR.
As ek jy was sou ek nie so gelyk het nie.

There is a shortened version of the story in the September Superbike mag.  Interesting to see how much has been said and written about the Yam since this little outing....  And I am having a great time on mine too.....

Saw the write up in SBK, well done, good story.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Thanks Adv, Clinton Pienaar was very keen on the story since the planning stages.  It was good to work with him and I enjoyed learning a few things from him.  Nice person.

In todays Raport "Tyd" magazine (12 september) is Johan Bakkes' version of the trip - pg 20. Thought some of you might be interrested in reading it?  ;)

Here is the link to the on-line version of Bakkes's story too.

Lekker Bakkes!  Tamaties in 'n topboks werk net eenvoudig nie.....  Maar in 'n yskas op 'n Landcruiser ry hulle fantasties.   Dankie Johan.  :thumleft:

Hoe lewer 'n mens kommentaar op so 'n storie?  Want dit is wat dit is: 'n verhaal van mense.  Die agtergrond is 'n land wat in puin gele is deur 'n verwoestende oorlog - burger en oorgrens ... alles om ander se belange te bevorder ... en soos altyd "as die olifantbulle baklei, word die gras vertrap".
Die karakters is uiteenlopend: van mense se soeke na rus, vrede en verlossing ... iets groter as hulle om hul gebroke lewens sin te gee; die korrupte amptenary wat die uiteinde van eksploitasie is; die nuwe uitbuiters; die vlugtelinge wat 'n nuwe lewe en heenkome soek - en dan die groep op 'n pelgrimstog:  is dit om ou spoke tot rus te bring; is dit om die "Onsienlike" te soek; is dit 'n behoefte om te ontsnap van die alledaagse, of is dit waar manne hulself konfronteer en ontdek ... om tot 'n besef te kom van wat "lewe" is?
Wonderlike inspirasie - maar tog so onbeskore vir die meeste van ons.
Soos wat ek dit lees, geniet en opgewonde raak ... so ook voel ek die beklemming om my hart: sal ek dit kan doen?
Dankie vir iets tot nadenke ... veel meer as net 'n avontuur deur 'n bekende, dog vreemde, landskap.
Everyone I come across in cages they bought
they think of me and my wandering
but I'm never what they thought
got my indignation but I'm pure in all my thoughts
I'm alive...

Hi Myni, dankie vir die diep kommentaar, ek moes dit 2 keer lees....  So iets gaan meer or die mense, die "ons" en "hulle" in al sy fasette, as enigeiets anders. Dit is wonderlik om mense se reaksie op sekere gebeure te sien en hulle so beter te leer ken.  Ons almal het 'n gemaksone.  Die uitdaging is om ongemaklik te raak in jou gemaksone, en uit te klim.  Jy kan nie op water loop as jy in die boot bly sit nie.....

Also thanks again to all of you for the comments and PM's and phone calls, etc.   The trip had many aspects and resulted in a lot of discussion.  The people, the war, the Yamaha and a whole lot more.  I have really enjoyed to see this and listen to all the thoughts.  Thank you!  :thumleft:

great report and respect for taking on all that sand especially to you and Jan with the yammie. I have seen Angola from Ruacana, Cahama, Lubango, Namibe and Tombua. Also have a picture of the Venessa Seafood where she just is completely on top of the sand - just dont know how to post it.

All was done by car off course... so maybe one day i will have the cahunnas to try it on a katoom...

Thanks again
Back on the horse!
