    The picture was taken at the police station on the road just outside of Kaya: as I suspected, the policemen did not want to let us go with such a ruin.
    They finally accepted after Karim gave them some tips and Honoré promised to arrange it as soon as possible. LOL!

    Belive it or not: this vehicle made it...!
    In 2 days, more than 400km (Manega and then Dibilou) on earth roads, sometimes with no road at all... without any single problem!
    And Honoré is a really good driver.
    Costed 30000CFA (45€) for 2 days including car and guides, plus petrol.

    The next few days, we visited villages in the surroundings of Kaya.
    We decided to keep with us, as guides, the two boys who took us to the hotel: Honoré Sawadogo and Karim Sinporé. Honoré has a little garage, Karim is a gold washer.
    We asked them to find a car for our visits in the villages.
    They did...

    Arriving in the early morning at Honoré's garage where the car is parked.
    They say: "It's almost ready... We just have to fix the seats and the gear lever!"

    Mmmmmhhhh!
    On my personal opinion, many other things needed to be fixed. LOL!

    The garage.

    She did…!
    Funny road adventure (!!) from the bus stop to the hotel. 2 km only, but it seems they are 200…!

    We are so heavy with our luggage that the front wheel hardly touches the ground, and the rear one is almost flat.
    A strange dance on the earth streets of Kaya!

    We finally arrive safe at the hotel, on the top of a hill above the city and it’s big lake.

    Mobylette...
