From my diary:

Once we reach Kabala, the sealed road runs out and everything is covered in red dust: the road, the cars, the leaves, the rocks, the grass, the trees, the people. And us. Fortunately there is very little traffic, as we would have been absolutely covered if we’d been following another vehicle; as it is, each time we meet another car, or one of the huge lorries that transport goods along this road to and from the Congo, the air is full of ruby-coloured flying sand! The villages along the way grow cabbages, Irish potatoes and some coffee on very sad looking plants. The landscape is becoming hillier as we climb through terraces valleys, and I’m astonished to see women carrying large half hundredweight sacks of potatoes on their heads up vertical slopes. They have a hard life around here!
