After losing most of our cooking equipment and medical kits we had a lot to do before we could leave Dar es Salaam. The bike wasn’t in the best condition either and the side panniers had to be replaced after the theft.
We had managed to find a handful of medicine, the very bare necessities and one set of contact lenses for me. Cooking equipment proved a bit of a challenge though, despite Guillaume’s best efforts. Eventually we just decided to start driving and figure the rest out as we go along.
We had only gone about 65km when we discovered Bagamoyo, a stunning historical village along the coast. Here we also found new cookware – a very Chinese petrol stove to match our very Chinese bike as well as aluminium plates, a pot and we even managed to get a bit of work done on the bike.
Honestly, the cost of our new kitchen is less than 10% of our original one and it works even better! We couldn’t have asked for any more, now we’ll have to see how long the stove lasts in comparison with our expensive original one.
Pole Pole is sadly in a less than perfect condition but nothing too serious and we should be on the road again soon. We can hardly wait to see Mount Kilimanjaro for the first time!
