Favorite thing: I love sunset photos. In this region the sunsets were rather misty affairs, because of the amount of dust in the air, as you can see from the sand blown up by the lorry on the far right of this picture.
It had been a long and hot day in a tatty old bus with no air conditioning. With the windows open on the dry tracks across the coutryside, the bus became full of dust. We were covered from head to toe in a layer of ed sand (see photo under Warnings and Dangers).
Fondest memory: Coming to the lodge in the park, we were delighted to find that the rooms had en suite showers and there was plenty of hot water. Oh what heaven - standing under the running water washing off all that day's grime.
Although we did find many of the local people hostile and aggressive, the people we visited on the island village were most charming.
Fondest memory: The women who were cleaning mussels were cheerful, happy, friendly and beautiful! It was a true delight to wander around the island.
