I set off before sunrise and the road to the border gets immediately very bad. Big pothoes and cuts in the pavement . I climb a few long hills until I reach the border. Tanzanian side goes smooth but I wait over an hour on the Zambian side. After the border the road becomes horrible, a constant change between pavement with meter big potholes, gravel sections and road construction. I go very slow and just reach the first bigger village after sunset. There is only one guesthouse on the main road and a cockroach is sitting on my bed. There is also no water and an electricity problem. Two houses further there is a restaurant and I join the guests who are eating with torches or phonelights. Well, an adventurous day, will be good memories afterwards.
