We eventually arrived in Mpulungu on the southern shore of Lake Tanganyika. The overnight bus trip from Lusaka to Kasana is worse than any overnight flight between Europe and South Africa (economy class). After a coffee and collecting the kayak from storage, we eventually got it on a bakkie and with the help of a few beer cases, to more or less level it over the canopy, we got going to Mpulungu. Tomorrow we will be distributing a few mosquito nets at a clinic before setting sail for Tanzania. (or is it start rowing?). The plan is to do about 30 km. It will take us just across the Tanzanian border.
We are off on our very exciting expedition.
We cannot believe that its only one week to go before we leave! One year's preparation and planning is finally getting to is end. At the moment we are very excited, but also bit nervous. There is still a fair amount of things to finalise. Next week this time we will be in Lusaka already, from where we will be taking a bus to the Lake's southern point over a 800km journey. If all goes to plan, we will start kayaking on Monday 21 June. So please hold thumb that we do not have any unexpected delays!
