I'm in Windhoek now slowly recovering. Thanks to Dru in Windhoek, he's been great.
I got doctors advise and I had malaria and some strains of it reoccur every year, if you take treatment for malaria it won't show up. The people in Angola were very helpfull with directions etc. Saw one guy with a rocket launcher over his shoulder - probably not much good without ammo. Lot's of holes in bridges and the road, some I was close to falling into. The mine clearing crews were out clearing the road sides so they can widen the road. Lubango to Oshakango was a shocker of a road. Corrugations for km after km and lots of big holes in the broken tar sections.
One girl was lucky i did'nt hit her as she ran straight across in front of me without looking. At 80 km/h probably would of killed her - as it was I brushed her arm. I had a good rear tyre puncture and lost all the air straight away . The bike went opposite lock a few times before I stopped and wiped my brow.
Just recovering in Windhoek and Dru is buying the bike for his farm. I'm off to England and Scotland next to see cousins then think about the next step. I got a third of the way to England by bike and I was'nt going to risk malaria in an even more remote area further north. Your health is all you've got at the end of the day. It's not a nice thing to get.
Thanks for tuning in folks. I hope you enjoyed the story anyway.
