You have really got my attention Jo.
Well done for taking on this mammoth challenge. I am most envious.
Good luck for the rest of the adventure - looking forward to more.
Safe riding.

Sooooooooo.....I will spend another week in Angola.

I will go with the guys from the Motorcycle club here in Luanda to Huambo over the weekend. (www.amigosdapicada.com) We're about 30 riders for this trip. I.O.W, I'm heading back down South. It's just a social ride. But I think it a good idea for several reasons: 1. It's a great opportunity for me to get to see Huambo. I haven't been there. 2. For political reasons: building relations. 3. Just because I CAN! lol.

We will leave Luanda on Saturday at 5:00am and head down to Huambo. We will meet up with the guys from the Lobito motorcycle club about 70 kilometers from Huambo. Then we will all ride together and spend the night in Huambo, chilling in hot water springs. Lovely.

Sunday we explore the area. Monday we ride to Lobito and spend the night there. Tuesday back in Luanda.

Then on Wednesday a few of the Moto club guys from Luanda will ride up with me to Soyo. Will do this over two days. The road from N'zeto to Soyo is very bad. How bad, I am yet to see. From what I understand it's a bad sand road. I know what the road looks like to N'zeto. It's a gravel road, mostly. Lots of holes and corrugation...but nothing too serious.

From Soyo I will put the bike on a boat...and get off in Cabinda. Which means I will skip DRC for now. I have been advised that the roads are almost impassible at the moment because of heavy rains.

Monsoon season is almost here, so I'll have to see how it goes further up the West Coast. I spoke to a few friends in Nigeria and they're saying at the moment everything looks okay.

Will handle every situation as it comes my way.  :thumleft:

As you all know, Jo has extended her stay in Angola - taking a ride with local motorcycle clubs to Huambo. Here is Jo's latest position:
