  Camping on the rock
by grets

The last night of the trek, we pitched our tents on the Tigou Plateau. Although the ground was incredibly hard (rock), I slept surprisingly well. The villagers entertained us with dancing until the early hours of the morning (well, it probably wasn't any later than 10pm, but we'd been up since 5am and trekked for 15 miles, so snoozed off before they did.)

Toilets were - well, non existent. One rock for number ones, one rock for number twos. We weren't even able to bury the evidence in the sand as we usually did. (if you saw someone walk off with a spade, you knew where they were going)
