  truckdriver from Nairobi
by sachara

In the north of Kenya we travelled again with our own truck, hired in Arusha this time, after we had to leave our first truck in N'Djamena in Chad. Because of the problems in Darfur in Sudan, we couldn't travel overland and had to fly from Chad to Ethiopia.

In the south of Ethiopia this truck from Tanzania came to pick us up and to bring us to Dar es Salam at the end of our trip. The Tanzanian driver of the truck from Arusha couldn't enter Ethiopia without visa. So a Kenyan driver from Nairobi, who didn't need a visa, was needed to cross the Ethiopian border to pick us up in Turmi in South Ethiopia with the Tanzanian truck.

In Samburu National Reserve we had to say goodbye to this nice guy, because we should made a detour to the west and at this point he travelled straight to Nairobi, only 250 KM from here
