I say goodbye to my cameraman Pasi and his driver Solomon and head alone across the border at sunrise. Fast and well organized crossing for African standards. The road is smooth and I progress fast through amazing scenery. Africas highest mountains are around and mighty Kilimanjaro in the distance. I push all day with only two 5 minute stops as there is a long strech through a National Park in the evening and I dont want to risk getting into the dark (lions and other nightlife around). Villages are far apart here and the people are super friendly. The children all wave and shout Muzungu (white man). Make it through the park with the last daylight and find a hotel in the small town Babati. 263 km despite hills and headwind, less than 5.000 km to the Cape left.
